'What's it like, not being real?'
In LA, where today's star is tomorrow's busboy, discarded 'Fictionals' - characters spun into flesh and blood by technology - are everywhere. Screenwriter Niles Golan's therapist is a Fictional. So is his best friend. So (maybe) is the woman in the bar he can't stop staring at. It's getting so you can't tell who's real and who's not.
Niles isn't completely sure how real he is....
