In this heartwarming comedy, five-time Emmy winner and Independent Spirit nominee Paul Devlin, paints an intimate portrait that evolves into an epic 27-year journey to discover what success really means.
Relentless rock ’n roller Jim Wood is abrasively funny, revealing surprising insight and intelligence as he struggles to reconcile his wife Christie’s desire for a child, with pursuing a life making music in a culture where anything short of celebrity is failure.
Jim and Christie’s quest for fame takes us to the homes of acclaimed musicians from Styx and the Joe Jackson band, inside the legendary recording studio Record Plant, onto the set of cult horror movie director Don Dohler, as well as along for an encounter with Elvis Costello.

Jim and Christie’s pursuit of celebrity becomes a rite of passage, transforming them in surprising ways. Perhaps success is not what we thought it would be at all…
