Brief synopsis

In a world divided into main and supporting characters, people with movie flaws are persecuted and ostracized. 16-year-old Paula has worked her way up from simple supporting character and is about to take the crucial test to become the main character, but she just can't seem to manage any stirring music. In search of a solution, she finds herself in the world of the outlaw outtakes, with whom she connects more than she would initially like.
