Filmed 24/7 over 20 years, an aspiring comedian's home movies create a real-life comedy which asks if following a childhood dream is the meaning of life or an unrealistic waste of time. This Grand Jury-nominated film explores why anyone would want to seek the illusion of fame given the personal costs and exposes the mask that the comedian wears for his public persona. Made from the 1000s home videos that comedian Ed Surname left behind, this is a real man's real life, edited into a satire on the world of show business, looking at the illusion of fame in our society, the role of money in happiness and the dilemmas of artistic ambition.
