Young Jane White was raised by television, and home schooled by her agoraphobic mother. As a result, Jane has a unique perception of the world. Feeling the absence of her father, Jane escapes into prime time episodes of his TV chat-fest, "The Gerry Show"--the most outrageous TV talk show in media history. She transforms herself into the show's outrageous topics in a desperate hope that she will be booked on the show, and one day be reunited with her long lost dad. Along the way, Jane makes friends with and encounters a whole sideshow filled with freaks, weirdos, transvestite hookers, aliens, and even finds a serial killer boyfriend.
