A nervous young man lives at the dead end of a dead-end town. On his 18th birthday, he comes into his inheritance. With a little help from an old teacher, he finds it equips him to broadcast over the internet.

Living in a house where rolling news is a constant presence, he does what comes naturally - he fires up his computer and presents the news. However, his news is different - it puts a spring in the audience's step - until his grandma starts to grow suspicious about what he is getting up to, nightly, in his bedroom, and tries to put a stop to the broadcasts.
