FANTASY-DRAMA
ACT I: Phil becomes blindsided starstruck with hot celeb paparazzi darling Justin Mianus, wants to become him.
ACT II, Part I: Begins with the easy accoutrama and sh!t, unhappy with results. Family gravely concerned.
ACT II, Part II: Surgery, expensive surgery, of dubious results, seems to be the only thing that satisfies Phil - and ostracizes him from family and friends. Justin rebuffs his adoration sending Phil into a tailspin.
ACT III: Phil "Mianus" acquires new family and friends in therapy and social outings where he is accepted and loved for who he is.

Alternate dark ending.
ACT III: Phil "Mianus" stalks Justin, paparazzi mistake Phil for Justin - as well as Justin's deadly stalker who shoots and kills Phil, who dies with validation that he has achieved his goal to become like Justin and die for his hero.

Epilogue: Justin publicly appreciates the extreme fandom but in private really doesn't give a sh!t.

Whup... Hold up.
