A struggling actor goes cross-country to chase his dream -- and the legend of his idol, Jack Kerouac -- in this comedy drama. American Saint finds the hapless Miles (Kevin Corrigan) struggling to find work as an actor in New York City. When he hears of a movie being made about the life of America's preeminent Beat writer, he's convinced that he's the man for the role, and sets out on a cross-country cab trip to audition in Los Angeles. Along the way, he gives new meaning to the phrase "method acting" as he attempts to live his own version of Kerouac's On the Road, all the while hoping that he'll be better-prepared for his big moment.
