Truman Burbank lives in the perfect town of Seahaven. Here, everything is idealised – the weather, the people, the work. However, Truman begins to discover that everything is not as it seems. Gradually, he realises that the people around him do not seem to be real, and the town itself seems to follow a routine which will not allow him to escape. There is something unpleasant and fake about his life. The film asks the question: what if the world you live in is not real?
