Upon moving to Los Angeles, Matt makes a pact with himself:  In seven years he'll be a working actor.  He makes a promise that if he isn't working by then, he'll pack up and return home.  This story begins seven days shy of the seven year deadline... and he is just as anonymous as the day he started. 

This is his goodbye story.
