My Heart Is An Idiot is a documentary about love that spans two years and over a hundred cities, capturing the road-tripping lifestyle of Davy Rothbart (This American Life) who looks for love in all the right places, but in all the wrong ways. Traveling throughout North America promoting his magazine FOUND, a virally popular and iconic printed collection of discarded notes and photographs, Davy seeks advice on his tortured love life from people he meets (Zooey Deschanel, Ira Glass, Newt Gingrich, Davy’s mom, and others), and attempts to follow that advice, with comic and surprising results.
