Jack Rebney, aka the angriest man in the world, has delighted and fascinated millions of online viewers with the hilariously foul-mouthed and ill-tempered outtakes from a recreational vehicle sales video he made in 1989 - one of the first and best underground videos to be passed hand-to-hand on VHS tapes, before the internet turned him into a full-blown phenomenon.

Filmmaker Ben Steinbauer takes on the seemingly impossible task of tracking down Jack. His journey turns into a fascinating exploration of viral video culture and what it means on a personal level to its sometimes unwilling subjects. Exploring issues of privacy, internet bullying and ageing, this film illuminates how even the most rambunctious individuals have a human side.
