This whimsical tale of a Star Wars-obsessed mechanic who dreams of being a famous comedian-chef is awash in Jedi jokes and Darth humour.

Paolo’s search for stardom takes him on an epic journey after he rescues an abandoned goldfish, only to be jilted when it makes a play for freedom. Luckily, the farce is with American Chris Kauffman as he mimes, puns and sings his way to a revelation that will change his life in this 60-minute charmer.

— Pat St. Germain
