Divorced from his wife (and reality), deluded, eccentric Andrew applies a magical philosophy to his romantic life to become a successful lady's man, rise from his depression and achieve godhood. With the superhuman persistence of a door-to-door salesman, he tangles with obstacles thrown up by a resentful friend, his lingering feelings for his ex-wife and the refusal of reality to co-operate with his plan. A painfully awkward comedy, Male Fantasy has been called "enormously funny" by Variety and "original and compulsively watchable" by Eye Magazine.
