1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone With The Wind. You see, the screenplay just doesn't work. Selznick summons to his office famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and formidable director Victor Fleming. Selznick locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor for five days to write the screenplay for one of the most beloved films of all time.
