Jimmy Leung's motto is simple: dream, scheme, and self-esteem. His goal is to make movies like his hero James Cameron and meet Arnold Schwarzenegger — but Ryan Flowers is the only filmmaker Jimmy knows. His insistence that they work together yielded this insightful and humorous documentary about friendship, ambition, and Jimmy's daily battles with mental illness.
