Despite his immense achievements, Eddie suffered from bouts of depression throughout his career, and now is in a place where he can no longer continue in the sport that saved him from himself. In danger of falling back into the dark world of depression Eddie looks for a new channel of expression, and turns to his life-long hero and friend, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in the hope that he can follow him into the acting world of Hollywood.

Now, on a quest for a new challenge, Eddy travels to Arnie's roots in Austria, to his own record breaking events in Australia, and finally, having met up with his friend Arnie in Ohio, to Los Angeles, where he encounters the ruthless world of talent agents and directors, as he tries to break into the most competitive business of all......Hollywood.
