Synopsis
Have you ever wondered "What is the meaning of life? Why do we exist?" The answer to this vexing question is now within your reach! You'll find it in a small yet amazing booklet, which will explain in easy to follow simple terms your reason for being! The booklet, printed on the finest paper, contains illuminating, exquisite color pictures and could be yours for a mere $9.99. This is the ad that alters the life of Dave Peck, an unemployed 28 year old who still lives at home. In his struggle to share his find with the world, Dave's surreal path crosses with those of his unusual neighbors: an old man and his disgruntled guardian angel, a magician in debt, a bewitching woman who likes her men extra smooth, a broken hearted man who befriends a group of hard partying two inch tall students, and a little boy who sets his piggy bank free. Their stories are woven together, examining the post-modern meaning of hope.
