This incredible story follows the adventures of Steve Glew, a small-town machinist formerly obsessed with cereal boxes and box-top point collecting who boards a plane for Eastern Europe soon after the fall of the Berlin Wall. His mission: To locate a secret factory holding the most desired and valuable Pez dispensers. Steve becomes the hero of his own adventure, smuggling Pez into the U.S. and making millions in the process – until his arch-nemesis, The Pezident (CEO of Pez USA), decides to destroy him. A wildly entertaining story with Glew starring in his own re-enactments, this is like Errol Morris crossed with Willie Wonka.
