Hero on paper

The 41-year old receptionist and parttime Lucky Luke imitator Rutger is overshadowed by his alter-ego, the cowboy that shoots faster than his shadow. In an attempt to become a comic-book hero he confronts the disappointments of daily life by drawing a cartoon with himself as the main character. With enough imagination we are all comic-book heroes in our daily lives.
