Synopsis

Comedy about a second-rate American talent agent who has devoted more effort to his career than to his family. Whilst working in Romania, he is saved from the wreckage of a car crash by a 7'7" tall man, a Shakespeare-quoting caretaker. Seeing an opportunity for lucrative exploitation, the agent persuades the man to leave the monastery where he works and accompany him back to America to look for fame and fortune as a movie star. The Romanian is drawn by the hope of being reunited with his lost childhood sweetheart.
