    A modern day troubadour learns the whimsical rules of the record industry after moving out to Los Angeles and becoming the subject of a vicious rumor. Henry Phillips travels through the heartland singing his satirical folk songs to anyone willing to give him the time of day. Henry decides that it’s high time he moves to a place where people can appreciate his twisted sense of humor. A few days later, Henry is crashing his brother’s couch in L.A. But while his brother can’t get an acting gig to save his life, Henry finds success almost overnight. A few solid shows later, and Henry gets a record deal, some radio airplay, and a positive write-up in a local paper.. Unfortunately L.A. can be a fickle town, and when Henry becomes the unwitting subject of a nasty rumor, the success he’s worked so hard to achieve suddenly begins to slip from his grasp. – Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
