The film takes its time to get on its feet and capture the viewer. The film is about a former child star which still can't accept that his one film is likely the last he ever starred in. He drives around in a car that's one big ad for himself on wheels and occasionally makes the local news with some freak incident. When the film starts he has just burned down his trailer and caused a traffic jam. He then hits the road with a DV cam to capture real life. A friend promised him he could sell such material to an Italian TV station. When he meets a famous singer on the way and gets drawn into her story things get interesting. A good cast is the film's biggest asset. This is a reasonably well done feature film debut.
