    • Synopsis
    • It’s hard not to like Tracy Orbison (Hubbel Palmer). An introspective Midwestern stockboy, Tracy passes his days scribbling poems in a notebook during shift breaks and day-dreaming of making something more of himself... although there’s already quite a bit of him.
      In a moment of enlightenment, he enrolls in an acting class taught by a pompous local actor (played by a hilarious William Baldwin). Things don’t quite go according to plan, and a tragically comical chain of mishaps leads Tracy to take a more active role in his life. He mentors a young delinquent, fends off his obnoxious mother (Academy Award® Nominee Kathleen Quinlan) and wallflower sister (Mary Lynn Rajskub, Julie & Julia, TV’s “24”), and attempts to conquer the elusive driver’s exam.
      A different kind of everyman, Tracy Orbison reminds us that the caution light flashes even while chasing our dreams.
