THE STORY: Lee Fountain is an ordinary electrician: his boss doesn’t appreciate him, his wife keeps correcting him, and his life seems to have lost all meaning. But when Lee starts channeling the spirit of Ralph Waldo Emerson, everyone wakes up. CALL ME WALDO shows us how one person’s poetic yearnings can change everyone and everything—even our imperfect world.
