The first segment consists of Faires’ interview with actress Priscilla Presley. Presley discusses the years she lived in Austin, as well as why she chose the project as her film debut. In the second segment, Faires sits down with actor Leslie Nielsen to talk about his approach to humor. Faires asks Nielsen about how he made the move from drama to comedy. In the last segment, Faires interviews actor Ricardo Montalban, who speaks eloquently about the issues facing Latino actors in the film industry.
