When a writer is discovered to have written scathing reviews of his rivals' work his wife persuades their young assistant to take the blame - with unexpected consequences.

Directed by Marc Beeby

Writers have historically attacked their rivals' work - sometimes their friends' work - via anonymous reviews. But the internet has taken the practice to a whole level. Serious reputable people have been found guilty of slating fellow writers' work, or writing grotesquely self-praising pieces, and publishing these remarks in some very public places. And they are just the ones who got caught.
