Adored by his fans, can he ever really connect to one person?

This feel-good comedy-drama film tells the story of fictional stand-up comedian Manny Lewis (played by Australian stand-up comedy performer Carl Barron). Adored by his fans, successful comic Manny Lewis finds himself at the height of his popularity, but at the depths of his loneliness. Disenchanted with life and himself, he feels he can’t trust anyone with matters of the heart. Until one day by chance he meets the beautiful and complex Maria. With his fame skyrocketing and the temptation of overseas riches in America beckoning, Manny must choose between taking a risk on love, or retreating to the confines of his lonely but lucrative career.
