Director Victor Fanucchi takes a humorous look at the controversial masterpiece of an author so reclusive that no one even knows his or her gender, and the efforts of an obsessed college student to complete his thesis on the book in an innovative mockumentary that is sure to have even soft-spoken bookworms howling with laughter. Years after its original publication, J.D. Nochpynne's novel "The Pale Queen of Night" continues to confound even the most astute literary scholars. When professors and founders of the Society of American Nochpynne Scholars Aldridge Bullock, Candace De Luna, and Ed Fertig organize an academic conference staged to debate whether the book aims to target white male hegemony or illuminate the flaws of the politically correct mindset, Nochpynne-obsessed 13th year grad student Sasha Plotzkin sees the event as the perfect opportunity to finally prove his worth in the literary community despite the fact that he hasn't received an invitation to the event. Now on the brink of a nervous breakdown and close to being expelled from Hampford College, Plotzkin desperately attempts to finish his thesis and gain a spot in the conference by posing as a lecturer at Midwestern University while fending off the decidedly forward advances of a smitten student named Anna, who believes that she and the fraudulent "teacher" are soul mates.
