Aspiring actor Mike (Kirk Cameron) is convinced he's on the cusp of stardom when his character on the TV soaper "Big City Streets", Strong Waverly, is scheduled to emerge from a coma and speak his very first lines. At the same time, Luke (Leonardo DiCaprio) prepares to move out of the Seaver household and into the home of his foster family, the Kimballs.
