Audiences will walk away feeling a little in love with the world. They will have laughed and cried and laughed again, and they will know they are not alone.
With four true stories – sexual taboos, huge lies, deep sorrows and blind hope – Rob takes us on a roller coaster ride that would make a better man wise. Instead, they just left Rob clearly confused.
Story 1: It’s a tribe gathering: It’s Grandma’s last Christmas. But two of the cousins let their “feelings” get the better of them.
Story 2: After telling a lie that lands him halfway around the world and onto a film set as a continuity expert, Rob must learn this highly skilled profession from a book… on the plane during the trip.
Story 3: After his father’s death, Rob goes on a bike ride…with his father on his back.
Story 4: Looking for a mid-career breakthrough, Rob enters the highly competitive world of musical theatre, but can he sing?
