A documentary about the day-to-day challenges of filming "Alexander", the epic directed by perfectionist Oliver Stone. The film covers the obstacles and the many different dynamics involved in the shooting of a detailed epic with a tremendous scope and with pressure coming from everywhere: from location problems and other accidents to unimagined questions that always seem to appear the minute the director is about to film a new scene.

Thinking on your feet. That's what I like about directing. That's the most exciting thing, cause when you're writing you can think, think and think. But when you're directing you're on the spot. It's like the combination of meditation with the instant, which is also meditation. Meditation is supposed to teach to live in the here and now.
