Talented teenager and budding novelist, Benjamin (Michael Angarano) spends much of his time on his own. Home schooled by his mum (Jennifer Coolidge) he has developed a passion for writing.
Unfortunately his story is not only ripped off by the legendary fantasy novelist Ronald Chevalier (Clement) but is then adapted for the big screen by the town's prolific homespun filmmaker and is a disastrous flop.
From Jared Hess, the director of NACHO LIBRE and NAPOLEON DYNAMITE.
