In July 2007 the two man crew set off for America accompanied by their oblivious lead actor. Obviously, with such extensive preparation, what could possibly go wrong? Quite a lot is the answer.
Upon arriving in New York, they find themselves hopelessly underfunded and incapable of getting anyone to commit to their project. They are unable to source locations, cast actors or generally get anything done.
