Throughout his journey he encounters multiple setbacks and characters that shape his life and view of the world. While his father is insistent that he become a doctor, Misha remains determined to follow his dream and to stay true to himself.

Our (Almost Completely) True Story

An aging screen legend and jobless voice actor navigate the LA senior dating scene in this (mostly) true-life romantic dramedy. Written by the couple and based on their own touching courtship, this life-affirming, charming and clever film “sparkles with wit and depth as it celebrates love and romance while reflecting on the challenges of growing older”. (Broadway World)
