When a little-known Canadian actor accidentally discovers through Facebook that he’s been wildly famous in Serbia for almost two decades because of a tv show "Tropical Heat", he sets out to discover the reasons why. The film examines how Rob Stewart inexplicably became a symbol of freedom through the long-forgotten TV role of Nick Slaughter in Tropical Heat (aka Sweating Bullets) during the non-violent Serbian protests which led to the overthrow of Slobodan Milosevic.
