A classic, smart comedy from a modern-day Evelyn Waugh, about a meek college professor who achieves one of mankind's most fervent wishes: the ability to fly. College professor George Entmen has been granted what he calls a "useless miracle"-he can fly, but only three inches off the ground and very, very, very slowly. Plus, he has to put his arms out in front of him like Superman. But when word leaks out that he's acheived one of mankind's greatest desires, meek George finds himself in a Kafka-esque world of exploitive friends, angry magicians, and non-stop media attention.
