A young filmmaker in 1960s Paris juggles directing a cheesy sci-fi debacle, directing his own personal art film, coping with his crumbling relationship with his girlfriend, and a new-found infatuation with the sci-fi film's starlet.

1969. American Paul Ballard, living in Paris with his French flight attendant girlfriend Marlene, is a film editor by trade. He is an aspiring filmmaker in his own right, he filming his and Marlene's day-to-day interactions so that he may get a better grasp on himself and their hot and cold relationship, despite Marlene believing the film is self-indulgent not worth anyone else's time. The latest film on which Paul has been hired as editor and on which he is also second unit director is an English language futuristic sex kitten action-adventure film set in Paris in the year 2001. It is helmed by famed French director Andrezej who discovered the film's leading actress, Valentine, who plays the title character, Dragonfly. With the majority of filming complete but the movie yet without an ending, the movie's producer, Enzo di Martini, fires Andrezej as he is unhappy with Andrezej's vision. Through a few iterations of directors, including wunderkind Felix DeMarco, Paul is eventually hired to complete the direction of the movie including coming up with an ending to the story. Through the process, Paul becomes infatuated with Valentine himself. Paul's now two movies may change the direction of both his professional and personal lives.
