When Louis Ortiz shaved off his goatee one day in 2008, his life changed forever. He looked in the mirror and he didn2t see himself, a middle-aged, unemployed Puerto Rican father from the Bronx. He saw the face of change, of hope, of money. Tells the strange and improbable tale of a Barack Obama impersonator who tries to cash in on the "look of a lifetime" and chases a fevered American dream from opportunity to oblivion.

Kind of an underinflated balloon of a movie. The protagonist is not dynamic, more aptly described as befuddled by his fortune. The incidents of him 'cashing in' on his Obama resemblance are noted, but not shown in depth. This might have made an interesting episode in a larger film about race and politics at the turn of the 21st century.
