1926. It is the story of a young French Canadian, Albert Renaud, who decides to leave his home country to conquer Hollywood. He has a letter of recommendation written by Jane Pickford, his old teacher, to her niece Mary Pickford. Jane, in exchange of this passport to celebrity, begs for a love kiss and literally succumbs to him. Albert immediately boards the Silver Bullet, train that will lead him to Los Angeles, carrying the innocence of a young man full of hope and ignoring everything of the adventures and encounters that he will face.
