Henry tries hard to blend in. Most of his life, he has been acting the human chameleon, which has turned him into a pale reflection of other people's expectations One day, after having brutally failed and crashed straight into reality, Henry's best friend Jon talks him into opening a restaurant with him in Spain. Goodbye rain and depression, hello tapas and sangria! Before leaving, though, Henry needs to fix a few things: kidnap his mother from a mental institution, find true love and uncover the truth about his best friend. But nothing turns out as expected, and Henry is caught up in a whirlpool of strange events.Why be a copy when you can be an original.
