A Leading Man

Everyone is happy for rising actor GQ Qi – the network, his mother, his best friend – everyone except GQ himself. He is stuck playing an offensive stereotype on a television sitcom, and the day he decides to speak up for himself on set, the executive producer fires him. Struggling to pick up the pieces, he starts dating A-list casting director Rachel. Love and work become intertwined.

Their relationship survives the protestations of GQ’s mother and best friend, but starts to show strain as it becomes clear that GQ is unable to land another acting gig. As pressures from work, love and family come to a head, GQ must confront the hard question: How much of himself will he compromise for career success?
