Rupert Pupkin, aspirante divo, passa la sua vita a preparare spettacoli che sogna di poter interpretare, prima o poi, alla televisione. Un giorno riesce a salire sulla macchina del suo idolo, Jerry Langford e gli chiede di poter partecipare al suo show. Langford, per liberarsene, lo invita a telefonargli in ufficio. Da quel momento, per Rupert, è tutto fatto, e comincia così il suo assedio a Langford, ovviamente senza alcun esito. Dopo aver subìto, alla presenza della ragazza che lui corteggia, l'ultima umiliante disillusione, Rupert cambia tattica. Con l'aiuto di Masha, un'altra "fan" di Jerry un po' squilibrata, rapisce il divo e chiede alla casa di produzione, in cambio di Langford, dieci minuti di esibizione. Il piano riesce, anche se, quando termina lo show, Pupkin viene subito arrestato. Ma il successo personale ottenuto, il grande clamore dell'avvenimento e l'abile sfruttamento della situazione da parte dei mass-media tengono desto l'interesse per l'ingenuo Rupert anche quando questi si trova dietro le sbarre. Così quando Rupert, dopo aver scontata la pena, uscirà di prigione troverà ad attenderlo tutti i riflettori puntati su di lui. (laFeltrinelli)
