Terminally unemployed, dating challenged Rebecca thinks she's scored her big break on Broadway by landing a job with the fickle Ian helping him manage the darling diva Simone.

Instead of a dream job, Rebecca finds herself scrubbing floors while careening from one disastrous relationship to the next.

When Simone confronts her, she "accidentally" shoves her down a flight of stairs.

Suddenly a star is born as Rebecca takes over, but then a bigger Diva is brought in, The Great Greta.

What to do? Should she kill her way to the top.
