Synopsis

It's hard not to like Tracy Orbison . A dopey Midwestern guy who excels as a food-stocking professional, Tracy politely and passively passes his days scribbling poems in a notebook during shift breaks and day-dreaming of making something more of himself. Although there is already a lot more of him than some think necessary. In a blinding moment of enlightenment, he enrolls in an acting class taught by a pompous Z-list has-been. Things don't quite go according to plan, as a chain of mishaps leads Tracy to take a more active role in his life by mentoring a young thug while fending off his obnoxious mother and indifferent sister, all the while awkwardly attempting to conquer the elusive driver's exam and trying to lose "about ten pounds." A different kind of everyman, Tracy Orbison reminds us that the caution light flashes even while chasing our dreams.
