SYNOPSIS:
Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) is the most famous face on television, only he doesn't know it. He is the unwitting star of a non-stop 24-hours-a-day documentary soap opera. Every moment of his life has been filmed by concealed cameras and broadcast to a worldwide audience. His friends, his family, everyone around him is an actor. He is a prisoner in a made-for-TV paradise.

This is the story of his escape.
