In 'n land waar mense nie meer opstaan vir waarin hulle glo nie, waar helde en liefde net in Hollywood flieks bestaan, moet twee wannabe superhelde die krag binne hulself vind om die een plek waar hulle in pas te red.

In a country where people no longer stand up for what they believe, where heroes and love only exist in Hollywood movies, two wannabe superheroes have to find the strength within themselves to save the one place where they fit in.

The film follows a group of friends who hang out at a comic book store every day. The store is home away form home, a place where they can live in their imaginations, be themselves and read comics all the time. That is, until JJ (son of JJ, Senior), goes on a mission to annex their beloved store and turn it into a parking lot. Our characters quickly come up with some hair-brained schemes to raise enough money to buy it back. However, there are powers that be and secrets untold that keep them from their goal.
