A comedy by Jon Holmes and Shane Wall about a man who will quite literally never save the day.

Meet Rashid - cinema projectionist, lifelong observer, and 'man whose life got a bit stuck somewhere along the line, quite possibly around the time he dropped out of college to watch all-night triple bills of Bruce Lee films at the very same cinema where he now, somewhat ironically, if a little predictably, works'.

Rashid is a dreamer, whose love of cinema has led him to adopt various mild eccentricities - not least of which is the belief that an American movie trailer voiceover guy shares his brain.
