Filmmaker, musician and eccentric Kurt Olav Helle lives on the countryside in Western Norway, but wants to go to Hollywood. He has a movie that needs pitching to a studio that can do his ideas justice. After living with Parkinson’s disease for seven years, the disease is starting to affect his legs, so getting around in Hollywood will prove a challenge. Never one to let minor setbacks dissuade him, Kurt Olav ropes in his old friend, the documentarian Pål Winsents, and together they set their sights for Los Angeles.
