Mark Borchardt is a wannabe film-maker whose passion for creating an epic about his own life, to be called Northwestern, is matched only by his inability to raise the necessary funds to realise his dream. Trailed by documentary film-maker Chris Smith for two years, Borchardt struggles to turn fantasy into reality, revisiting his previous film, a 40-minute horror short called Coven, which he is convinced could be a big seller on video.
