The true story of a young imposter with a talent for crashing celebrity events who discovers what's really important in life.

Singing on stage at the Grammys, getting high inside the Kremlin, driving in a U.S. president's motorcade--Craig Schmell has a world-class talent for talking his way into places he does not belong. But when his self-absorbed life crashes down around him, he finally learns how to be a better man. An inspiring coming-of-age story with cameos by some of the biggest stars of Hollywood and rock 'n' roll. The Uninvited is funny, insightful, and stunningly true.
