Tom feels bad for his pal so he takes her out on a martini lunch to drown her sorrows. A few drinks later, Tom proposes that they combine their expertise and begin their own magazine. Thus Bite is created as an entertainment magazine which emphasizes Hollywood sex and fun in that order. Bite begins to take shape in spite of the eccentricity and sexual inclinations of the staff until treachery threatens to destroy the project before the first issue is published.

This is a biting satirical look at the glamour magazine world.
