ALL THE HELP YOU NEED, The Adventures of a Hollywood Handyman is the frequently hilarious and sometimes frightening true story of Time Ryan's experiences when he hires himself out as a jack-of-all-trades. After placing an ad as a handyman to earn money during the actors' strike, Ryan is inundated by a case of needy characters worthy of a Hollywood film plot. When a chance encounter on a prospective job leads him into mortal danger, the hilarity ends and Ryan is left wrestling with the repercussions.
