After 20 years in showbiz, the once famous 47-year-old Canadian actor Rob Stewart is forced to move back in with his parents in Ontario. By chance, he discovers through Facebook that he is still wildly famous – in Serbia. Rob decides to travel to Serbia, where he discovers that his long-forgotten TV series Tropical Heat is the most popular show in the history of Serbian television. His character Nick Slaughter, a pony-tailed beach-bum detective, later became a symbol of freedom and democracy for the student movement that led to Milosević’ss downfall. Awarded Best Documentary at ZFF 2012.
