JESSE SANCHEZ, an artist/comedian gives the performance of his life. During a New Year's party, Jesse fakes a suicide attempt wrapping a retractable dog leash around his neck, accidentally knocks himself out, and sinks into the waters of his bathtub. Jesse gets the chance to reflect, possibly for the last time, upon his life and love. Known for his envelope pushing performances, Jesse's near death experience bends reality to stage and back again. He takes the audience across the universe of his life's greatest love stories, his quest for fame and the connection both play in understanding who he is underneath it all. With a bump on his head and a bruise on his heart, Jesse finds his way, reconciling with the fates, emerging from the tub to return to the stage a new man...well, at least a man with one hell of a story to tell.

Well this film delivers lows, there is very few highs in it, so even though Jesse visits at least one high in the film the watcher experience a lot of lows.
The lows The story is too simple, it is not interesting to see a film where the plot is something you can see a mile away. The acting is not that good, well there are parts that are okay, but in general the people are losers, dumb even and that is what they put it in the acting, it becomes too bad.
The highs I like the try to make it about his thoughts and imagination, the cartoons in it works very well and give a good sense of humor, but it is only very few times they appear. The times when Jesse is on stage actually works well, he seems to be happy and great, people like it in the film and the viewer gets the same impression.
I think if they have made it more strange or make more fun of itself it would have worked much better for it. And they should have kept on with the cartoons and the weird imagination.
