Synopsis

Documentary looking at the fans who take their love of the Star Wars phenomenon to the extreme. Filmmaker Dennis Przywara starts by documenting the intense rivalry that developed between two lines of fans who started queueing weeks early for George Lucas' 1999 prequel 'The Phantom Menace', with one line convinced that they represented the 'pure' fans, while the other were there purely for commercial gain. On his search for the extreme fans, which he dubs 'Starwoids', Przywara meets people who have changed their names to those of Star Wars characters, and others who have tried to break into Lucas' Skywalker Ranch.
