Type "The Angriest Man in the World" into any search engine and one name appears--Jack Rebney--a.k.a. "The Winnebago Man", an 80s RV salesman whose hilarious, profanity-strewn, on-the-job meltdown was captured on video and passed around on VHS tapes, before exploding into an Internet phenomenon seen by millions. When a young filmmaker goes in search of the legendary man who disappeared 20 years ago, he finds Rebney living alone on a mountain top, as sharp-tongued as ever, but more intelligent and lovable than anyone could have imagined. Winnebago Man is a outrageously funny and unexpectedly moving tale of one man's response to unwanted celebrity, and proof that the truth is both stranger and funnier than fiction.
