Description:
  [Screening @ the Tiburon Film Society]

Johnny Berlin, a porter aboard a refurbished 1930's luxury train expounds upon his life as a struggling writer while holding down a workaday job. His stories about his oddball adventures while constantly traveling and trying to maintain some semblance of a life on board the train are simultaneously funny and darkly pathetic.

While going about his business, making beds and cleaning toilets, he talks about not having a date in five years, trying to sell his liver for cash, asking his father to increase his life insurance policy so he’ll get a larger inheritance, and taking a writing sabbatical in Cambodia to write about a man who decides to roll across America.

The filmmaker follows his subject on a week long trip down the West Coast from Seattle to Los Angeles. The film is ultimately an intimate, offbeat, and humorous portrait of mid-life crisis presented as a monologue.
