"You can accuse me of plotting," Chili said, "now you're doing it."

Mobster turned Hollywood producer Chili Palmer has got another idea for a movie. This time he's checking out LA's other big business, the music industry: a world full of wannabe stars, run by crooks and hustlers - it's got plenty of potential. Chili's found his characters, trouble is, now he needs the plot. In an industry where every two-bit punk will do anything to be a big shot, the story should take care of itself - with a little help from Chili, that is.
