When she asks him to write a screenplay based on the extravagant story of her life, the pair set out on a lavish–and very expensive–adventure until she suddenly disappears, leaving Wyler to foot the bill. In his attempts to hunt her down, the young writer comes across the chain of unfortunates who had fallen into her trap. Together, they plot revenge. As Bees in Honey Drown will play through Sunday, Dec. 10 with various showtimes.
