The project -- partially financed through private investors and out of Nicholas' own pocket -- revolves around two talented brothers, Tim and Thom (Nicholas and his brother Tim Scarne), who live in a small town and dream of becoming famous club DJs. They go to Los Angeles to pursue their dream, only to wind up working at bar mitzvahs.
