In this heart-warming family comedy, Dennis (played by Christopher Gorham from TV's Covert Affairs and Ugly Betty), an average New York City accountant, goes unnoticed by his co-workers and boss who refer to him as ghost-like.
When his boss assigns him to the account of a wealthy young widow Katie Wells, and her son Jake who’s fascinated with the TV superhero ‘Man America’, Dennis takes an instant shine to the young boy and his mom. On his way home from their meeting he spies ‘The Imagination Superstore’, where he decides to try on the ‘Man America’ uniform. But when he steps out of the dressing room in his Man America outfit he unexpectedly discovers an armed robbery in progress. He bravely takes on the thief and thwarts his efforts to rob the costume store.
After security camera footage of the failed heist hits the news the following day, it causes a media frenzy. Apparently like young Jake, the rest of New York City also needs a superhero to believe in. Everyone wants to know 'who is Man America?!' and 'when is he coming back?!'
Now the average guy must become the superhero everyone wants him to be, despite his total lack of super powers.
