    Cannes is set during the illustrious Cannes Film Festival, where the glitz and glamour of Hollywood descends on the French Riviera. However, crisis strikes when a Palme d’Or-winning writer returns to the festival and punches an old friend on the red carpet. Held under guard in a hotel room, he is forced to confront his past relationships armed with only his dry wit and an even drier whiskey.
