about the film



This is the story of David Elder, an out-of-work actor in Hollywood, whose life is going nowhere. When an Dave is impressed by right-hand drive vehicles.old friend from Sydney (nicknamed "Spy") presents him with the lead role in a million-dollar movie, it’s just the opportunity Dave's been waiting for.

Selling everything he owns, Dave moves to Australia, eager to start his new life as a "movie star." Unfortunately, things don’t go as planned.

For starters, the "mansion on the beach" Spy promised, turns out to be a dump. Then Spy’s investor dies, and Dave learns that the "million-dollar movie" is really a "no-budget" movie being made in Spy's garage.

The only thing that keeps Dave from going back home is Kylie, Spy’s lead actress, who Spy, Kylie and Dave -- crammed into the front seat of the GTHO.has taken a liking to Dave. But she thinks he’s a big celebrity from America, and Spy insists that Dave maintain the illusion, to keep the project alive.

As Dave and Spy try to get their no-budget film funded (and con everyone they come in contact with), everything begins to fall apart. Kylie discovers the lie, and David is confronted with a choice between the girl he loves, and the fame he desires.

This is a simple and honest character-driven comedy about finding the courage to stand up and be whoever it is you really are.
