Comedy. Craig Schwartz is a street puppeteer whose act is a little too strong for most members of the public to stomach. His home life is not too happy either, since he is married to a frumpy woman named Lotte who seems more concerned about her collection of pets than him. When Craig finds a job as a filing clerk, he discovers a strange phenomenon: a closed door behind a filing cabinet which leads to a tunnel. When Craig enters the tunnel he is, to his surprise, `sucked' into the head of acclaimed American actor John Malkovich - for 15 minutes. Before long, Craig and pretty office colleague Maxine are charging customers money to do the same thing.
