Filmed over the course of 18 months, as a documentary crew follows Robert from one failed audition to another, recording in raw detail his every humiliation and small triumph as he searches for that elusive perfect role that will catapult his career into the next level. His vaunting optimism leaps one step ahead of a very real desperation. When he finally scores his dream role in a film directed by the Peter Bogdanovich, his life has reached a profound point of change - though what exactly will that change be?
