Tragicomic film about an adult Star Wars collector who wants to give absolutely anything to complete his precious collection. Even his health.

Mark’s Star Wars collection may seem like a bunch of toys, but the paraphernalia constitute a serious lifework. The stout helpdesk employee does everything to make his collection complete and fanatically scours markets and Internet auctions. But his hunt for the holy grail creates a gaping hole between him and his social life, his work and his family. He is even willing to risk his health for his collection.
