In this meta-movie par excellence, action movie star Jean-Claude Van Damme plays a version of himself as a washed-up actor who has just lost custody of his child and a coveted movie role to rival tough guy Steven Seagal. Desperate to escape the madness of Hollywood, he returns home to Belgium only to become embroiled in a post office robbery in which the police believe he is the main perpetrator. As the media circus rolls up, Van Damme looks back at his life and mistakes, all the while playing the hero role for real.
