Have you ever wondered: What is the meaning of life? Why do we exist? The answer to this vexing question is now within your reach... for a mere $9.99. This is the ad that alters the life of Dave Peck, an unemployed 28 year-old who still lives at home. In his mission to share his find with the world, Dave's path crosses those of his apartment block neighbours. Taken together, their stories offer a beguiling view of what hope looks like in a hauntingly fragmented world. "$9.99" is a silicon stop motion animated feature that offers slightly less than a $10 worth about the meaning of life.
