A documentary exploring the dreams of fans making the annual pilgrimage to Comic-Con – a San Diego convention which began as a fringe comic book meet in 1970 and is now the pop culture event of the year. As we follow aspiring punters we also meet the people who turned their passions into professions including Stan Lee, Joss Whedon, Frank Miller and Matt Groening.
