This documentary follows the inspirational story of Mike, a regular Swiss guy who not only dares to have a dream, but also stubbornly refuses to ever give up. After conforming to Swiss society for over 20 years, Mike realizes the widespread unhappiness and pessimism that surrounds him and decides to break loose.
Mike’s journey starts in Switzerland and leads him from his job as a draftsman to becoming a print model and stripper before he takes a detour into a Swiss jail. Having had time to think about life, Mike not only decides to become the most determined optimist, but also decides to pursue his dream of becoming an actor in Hollywood. Mike leaves Switzerland in 1995.
Arriving in Los Angeles, Mike experiences America, ultimate freedom and the harsh reality of Hollywood. Mike captures his journey on video and has no idea how many obstacles and rejection he’s gonna face during the next 10 years, and he certainly has no idea that his doings will soon get him blacklisted by the Swiss Government.
