Bobby Denise feels no guilt for what he did. So please: stop asking him about it.
In 1985, one of the best stage magicians in Las Vegas ended his career in front of a horrified paying audience. When Dusty, his prized white tiger, mauled and killed an audience member during a sold-out show, Bobby Denise did something awful that he's been trying to live with ever since.
Thirty-one years later, Bobby is back: out of jail, out of friends, out of everything. Retreating to his plush LA apartment where he hopes to live out his days in peace, Bobby finds that the entertainment community is not quite ready to forget him. Stalked by a tenacious journalist, beguiled by his neighbour's domestic Siamese, incensed by a litany of former colleagues, over-reaching has-beens and deluded hangers-on, Bobby is dragged back into the Vegas spotlight to make amends for his past actions.
It does not go well.
