Rudolph Murray hates his life. He has a large purple birthmark on his upper lip and everyday he finds someone staring, pointing, or calling him names-like Herpes Boy. He makes videos for the Internet in which he rants about his quirky life and zany family, including his New Age mother, emotionally distant father, and grumpy grandmother. When his "actress-slash-model-slash-dancer" cousin re-edits his videos to make herself more popular, it attracts a huge new audience and makes Rudolph an unlikely-and unwilling-cyber-celebrity at the worst possible time in his life.

His birthmark isn't contagious... but his videos are viral!

Originally set up at an independent film studio, writer/actor Byron Lane
decided to self-fund the film when the project went into turnaround. Beth Grant
and Ahna O'Reilly
had both been approached for their roles during this early development stage, and agreed to stay on and appear in the film at reduced fees because they loved the script so much. See more
