Storyline

Dennis Sullivan, an average NYC accountant is assigned to work with a wealthy young widow and her son, Jake - A boy obsessed with the televised superhero 'Man America'. Dennis sees how Jake uses the TV hero to fill the void left by his deceased father. Moved by the boy's loss, Dennis heads for the 'Imagination Superstore' in search of the beloved costume. Once inside the dressing room, Dennis listens as the shop falls prey to a knife-wielding robber. Now in costume, Dennis springs into action to boot the thug from the store with security cameras capturing all. Once the footage hits the airwaves, a media frenzy erupts, leaving an entire city longing for more Man America. Now Dennis must choose between the safety of obscurity or providing his costumed hope to others. Written by Anonymous

"Best Feature" at Coney Island. I was so happy to have been a part of this wild and fun festival and truly LOVED this little film. The simplicity is what won me over. This feature was a very refreshing departure from today's movie market, which seems to be saturated with much heavy handed garbage that can leave one feeling empty. The inner movie debate between the female and male lead over what best serves as a heroic example for children and adults alike was smart. Every character was a hero to another and I though that was so fitting. The message wasn't heavy handed either, which added to the impact. An excellent movie for lovers, children, families, and anybody with a heart.

Fun and fun.
