Cedar Rapids
Filmfest 2011

To call insurance agent Tim Lippe "naive" is a gross understatement. He's never left his small hometown. He's never stayed at a hotel. And he's never experienced anything like Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Sent to represent his company at the annual insurance convention, Tim is soon distracted by three convention veterans who will show him the ropes and push his boundaries. His unassuming naiveté is about to lead him into one complicated situation after the next. These events result in unlikely friendships as he faces all the things he fears, from sex, lies and temptation... to the unexpected chance to become the stand-up man he's always wanted to be. For a guy who plays everything by the book, this convention will be anything but conventional.
