THE STORY

We follow the Moonwalkers from their homes in Northern California as they embark on a road trip to Hollywood to realise their dreams of becoming full-time performers.

Throughout the journey we are reminded of their resilience as they stop at nothing to find success, supporting each other along the way. We see them face the harsh reality of trying to make it in Hollywood, experiencing high and lows which force them to look within and examine their motivations.

WORDS FROM OUR DIRECTOR

The moment I met the three Michael Jackson impersonators five years ago I was struck by their energy, enthusiasm and love for MJ. I wanted to capture that in a journey with the guys where you felt you were going along for the ride, feeling the highs and the lows as one of the team. As chance would have it they were about to embark on a road trip to Los Angeles, the perfect window to observe how fame pushes people to improbable lengths.

Our three Michael Jackson impersonators display a passion and connection for something others can only crave, reminding us of the importance of following our dreams.
— Tom Goudsmit, Director
