Plucked from obscurity to replace a star, a talented nobody wows ‘em and achieves a lifelong dream: fame and acclaim in equal measure. “Only in the movies,” you say? Think again, because Ramona Diaz’s charming, big-hearted documentary is an unbelievable, against-all-odds illustration of precisely that classic narrative.

A huge fan of the classic-rock band Journey (their 1981 pop hit Don’t Stop Believin’ is one of the most downloaded songs in iTunes history), Arnel Pineda was a poor young man from the slums of Manila who took his fandom to the next level by posting YouTube videos of himself covering his favorite Journey tracks. Journey guitarist Neil Schon, in need of a new lead singer since Steve Perry quit the band, saw the videos and was justifiably amazed: Pineda had a great set of pipes. Soon, Pineda was the band’s energetic frontman, and Journey was touring as a band re-born… Diaz wraps this Cinderella tale in humor, sentiment and an infectious earnestness, and through it all the charismatic Pineda is front and center, living the dream.

Director Ramona Diaz expected to attend the January 6 and January 8 screenings
