Hollywood. La La Land. Tinseltown. Everybody wants to be a STAR, but nobody wants to do the work–except for Dan, a struggling Filipino comedian/actor/hustler still trying to “make it”. He performs anywhere and will do anything to get a buck. But after years of paying his dues, an opportunity of a lifetime arises in his career and Dan is stuck at a crossroad…
