Peter McNamee's debut feature introduces us to undergrad film students Tim and Kathleen. Tim is astonished to discover a rock icon, long thought to be dead, actually alive and living in a remote part of Canada. It all begins when he discovers a clip of an old man playing guitar on a tape left inside an old video camera.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Increasingly played-out as a format for low-budget filmmakers, the mock-doc style creates more limitations than opportunities and Tim's supposedly candid footage of the would-be Lennon often feels awkwardly staged."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"A flawed but earnest and sometimes engaging low-budget feature."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"Suspend your disbelief and enjoy the last act."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
