Inspiring and thought-provoking, this evocative drama follows the life of Ike Jerome, a 24-year-old architecture student. Inspired by the few films he has seen, he takes the bold decision of trying his hand in the movie industry and rides the bus into Hollywood.
Jerome is almost autistic (later, his friend dubs him a "cineautistic") in his interactions with the world, and is deeply affected by his childhood with his religiously oppressive father.
