    In some dumpy Western town, a milquetoast teen named Benji Purvis (Michael Angarano) spends his time scribbling a notebook tome called “Yeast Lords,” an overheated Freudian adolescent fantasia about hyper-macho killer stags and scarf-wearing Cyclops warriors who have stolen his gonads. His story (and an entrance fee) earns him a trip to a writer’s workshop, where he meets his idol, Ronald Chevalier (Jemaine Clement), a pretentious and phony sci-fi novelist. When the novelist steals Benji's idea, even as Benji has sold the idea to a no-budget film crew, complications ensue.
