Brief Synopsis

Sammy Kanin is an agent with a winning personality who is perenially small-time because he can''t distinquish a talented individual from a showoff. He finds himself in Romania where a teenage client is working on a film. However, he gets lost and is having trouble finding the set. When he finally reaches the location, the ungrateful star fires him on the spot. Dismayed, Sammy angrily speeds off only to crash into a ditch. When he awakes, he is in a local monastery where the ward is a 7-foot, 7-inch tall guy named Max. Sammy sees a gold mine he can exploit and promptly has Max in America under the guise of seeing Max''s long-ago girlfriend, Lillianna, who now lives in New Mexico. Lillianna, however, wants nothing to do with Max, which prompts Sammy to concoct a scheme in order to force a reunion.
