Historia spotkania i wczesnej przyjaźni Tommy’ego Wiseau oraz Grega Sestero – aktorów kultowego „The Room”, który został okrzyknięty najgorszym filmem świata.

PLOT: When Greg Sestero, an aspiring film actor, meets the weird and mysterious Tommy Wiseau in an acting class, they form a unique friendship and travel to Hollywood to make their dreams come true.

In San Francisco, 1998, 19-year-old Greg Sestero meets a mysterious man, Tommy Wiseau, in acting classes with Jean Shelton. Shelton rips apart Tommy’s performance of a scene from A Streetcar Named Desire, but Greg is impressed by Tommy’s fearlessness and the two become friends. On Tommy’s suggestion, they move to Los Angeles to pursue acting careers.

Greg signs with Iris Burton, a talent agent, while Tommy faces rejection from agencies, casting directors, and Hollywood insiders. Greg develops a relationship with Amber, whom he meets at a nightclub, and Tommy grows jealous; as he fails to find work, he becomes disheartened. As Greg’s auditions also dry up, he shares his frustrations with Tommy, who decides to make a movie for them both to star in.

Tommy writes a screenplay, The Room. Greg reluctantly accepts the role of Mark and an associate producer credit. They rent out a production house; Tommy insists on buying all the production equipment and shooting the film on 35 mm film and HD Digital simultaneously. The employees introduce Tommy to Raphael Smadja and Sandy Schklair, who work as his cinematographer and script supervisor respectively.

Production starts smoothly, but Tommy is difficult to work with. He forgets his lines, arrives late, and refuses to supply his crew with basic needs such as drinking water, even as an actor faints. During preparation for a sex scene, Tommy humiliates actor Juliette Danielle by pointing out her acne to the crew. Raphael objects and Tommy briefly fires him. Having filmed extensive behind-the-scenes footage, Tommy reveals that he knows everybody hates him, and believes that nobody, including Greg, supports his vision.

Greg and Amber run into Malcolm in the Middle star Bryan Cranston, who invites Greg to fill in for a small lumberjack part in a Malcolm episode. The part requires a beard; as Greg is due to shave his beard for The Room, he begs Tommy to postpone shooting. Tommy refuses. On the last day of shooting, Greg accuses Tommy of being selfish and duplicitous throughout their friendship, and questions his real age and origins.

Eight months later, Amber and Greg have split up. Tommy invites Greg to the premiere of The Room; to his surprise, the entire cast and crew attend. The audience react first with horror then laughter at the film. Tommy walks out, but Greg comforts him, telling him they have delighted the audience. Tommy returns the theater as the credits roll, takes credit for his „comedic” movie, and receives a standing ovation.

During a post-credit scene, we see the cast in a party after the movie and we see Tommy talking to one of Greg’s friends, Henry, played by the real Tommy Wiseau.
