Director: Michael Guinzburg.
Travis is crazy in love with Nina, a beautiful Russian actress. He’s almost got it all -- he lives with his grandfather Bruce on a gorgeous Malibu estate above the crashing Pacific and has just completed a short film of great mystical beauty. But instead of confident and joyful, Travis is depressed and alcoholic. His mother, the movie star Irene Del Mar, is visiting from New York with her younger boyfriend, the film director Trigger. The screening of Travis’ film in front of family and friends is a disaster: Irene interrupts the film and Travis storms off. At the party afterward, Nina meets Trigger -- sparks. Travis becomes more despondent and neurotic. Moping on the beach, he throws a rock and kills a seagull. Like a crazy man, he presents the dead bird to Nina. The gift does not please her, and when Travis witnesses Trigger and Nina kissing he loses it and grabs a gun. Boom! Thankfully it is just a flesh wound but Nina is freaked and runs off with Trigger. Two years later, Trigger dumps Nina and goes back to Irene. Nina becomes a drug addict and Travis, whose film ironically has become a great success, rescues Nina from a dive bar in Texas and gets her into a Malibu rehab. Grandpa Bruce has a stroke and Irene and Trigger wing back to California to visit. Nina escapes rehab and returns to the estate for one final date with destiny. And yes, the gun is involved.
