Chiara is a spoiled starlet. Peter is a pet photographer. He’s also Chiara’s obsessed, middle-aged stalker-fan, who believes there’s another dimension, where he and Chiara can live happily. It’s Comic Con time, and Peter’s in trouble. He has violated his restraining order and is being held by a security guard who dreams of being a real cop. All Chiara wants is for her stage mom and her bodyguard to get lost—preferably, together. Everyone has a fantasy, and soon they’ll collide—with each other and reality.
