Irina Bjorklund (The American), Harry Hamiln (LA Law), and Edoardo Ballerini (The Sopranos) come together in this multi-narrative drama examining the strange life of artists.

All the world’s a stage, but some don’t know they’re merely players. During the opening night of his newest stage creation, controlling director Skene (Edoardo Ballerini) reflects on his latest collaboration with his playwright Jacqueline (Irina Bjorklund). As he begins to realize their collaboration is more one-sided than he once thought, Skene begins to reveal the manipulation and lack of control, even as Jacqueline begins to flourish creatively. The Unattainable Story asks the question; who really directs the director? – Aaron Garcia
