LOGLINE: Perry Chase falls in love with an enchanting Japanese girl who teaches him to dance like a pro for the upcoming Dance Machine competition, where Perry finds out that Tami’s not really who he thought she was… she’s not real at all.
ABBREVIATED SYNOPSIS: Perry Chase isn’t like most of the kids in his Senior literature class. He’s only a sophomore who takes a constant ribbing from senior jocks like Devon and Jason, especially when Perry’s favorite folk tale, myth or legend report introduces his class to a tale of Japanese lore. The girls, like cheerleader babe Lena, think Perry’s story is tragically beautiful, and Zoe, the other 16 year-old in the class, agrees it’s “not too shabby.” But, that’s Perry, a romantic at heart, who wonders out loud with pals MJ and Razmeek what it would be like to someday be with a beautiful girl… say someone like Lena. So, Perry, hard-working go-getter that he is, decides to ask Lena to the Harvest Moon Dance. Hey, she cried when he offered up his folk tale, she must have a sensitive spot. While Raz and Zoe watch, Lena and Devon make a fool of Perry, and he comes crashing back to reality.
