Sam feels trapped in an ordinary life. He needs more, but lacks the spark to ignite his future. When a friend finally kicks him out, Sam finds the world to be nothing like he expected. A story told in metaphor and reality-bending theatrics, wrapped in comedy, sci-fi, and romance.
Sam travels to other worlds in his imagination and in real life, struggling to satisfy his new found hunger. After experimenting with alcohol and gambling, Sam stumbles into an unbelievable relationship. Feeling unworthy, Sam flees the country to retrace his steps, rediscover his birthplace, and reinvent himself. As he searches for something legendary that will make him whole, he risks losing the real gem of his life.
