Doomed to repeat the traditional life of an Italian harlequin and rejected by the love of his life, Isabella, Truffaldino shirks his old world Commedia Dell'arte upbringing and two-steps across the Atlantic to find a strangely parallel, modern new world of situation comedy, and a new love, Debbie. But the old world discovers it still needs Truffaldino and comes barreling after him, resulting in a hilarious collision of genres and mistaken identities. When Truffaldino realizes that the problems of Venice Beach aren't so very different than those of Venice, Italy, he must decide to which of these worlds he ultimately belongs.
