The Truman Show

"On the air. Unaware."

Truman Burbank is an insurance salesman who unwittingly goes about his daily routine until discovering that things aren't always what they seem. On his way to work, a radio broadcast is interrupted by the dialogue of two men describing Truman's exact movements on the road. Then he catches a glimpse of what appears to be a stage set inside a neighboring building. He even sees his father, unrecognizable in disheveled hair and beard, who was supposed to be dead from an accident at sea years ago.

These events culminate in a desire to discover who he is. His aspiration to leave his current habitat spurs a breakdown, holding his wife hostage and facing many challenges in his adventure to find the truth. He discovers his childhood boat and ventures on what appears to be the open sea until reaching the end, only to discover a wall of painted scenery. He then hears the voice of Cristof, the creator of the 24-hour live TV series, The Truman Show, who offers him the choice of a lifetime.
