Synopsis

A street puppeteer is broke with passionless marriage. One day, however, he uncovers a secret passageway behind a cabinet at work. Suddenly he is sucked through a dark, wet tunnel. All at once, our sad sack protagonist enters a Twilight Zone-portal that leads him into a new world where he becomes the actor John Malkovich! The experience last for 15 minutes. Then our hero finds himself spit out onto the side of a road in New Jersey.

Well, this is quite an experience. Soon, he and the woman he is infatuated with at his new job form a company, J.M. Inc. The ad they pace reads, “Want to be someone else?” It draws hundreds of unhappy people, including the puppeteer’s wife. And the bizarre story just keeps getting stranger.
