Synopsis

Victor has a rather unusual job: he impersonates a dirt-poor eighteenth century peasant at a historical thematic park. In order to make ends meet, he also resorts to a certain scam, but he has a good reason for doing so: he must pay the hospital bills of his mentally ill mother. He dines at upscale restaurants and pretends to choke on food in order to get a check from his kind saviours. Victor has other problems as well: he is a sex addict. Paige, his mother’s doctor, mentions an experimental treatment that may work on her, involving genetically compatible umbilical cord stem cells – the only solution is that Victor has a child, and she volunteers to get pregnant in order to save the woman, whose secret diary provides some incredible about his father’s so far unknown identity. Maybe he isn’t Mr. Nobody, unlike he always thought – maybe there is something divine about him
