Meet Dave

Dave Ming Chang (Eddie Murphy), newly arrived in New York City, may be the ultimate fish out of water. There’s something about him that’s not quite right – for starters, he seems remarkably out of place and uncomfortable in his own body. And for good reason: “Dave” is not a man at all, but a ship made in the image of its miniature-sized captain.

Inside “Dave” is a crew of well-trained miniature people – a world within a world – that feverishly attempts to direct Dave’s every action and conversation. In each section of Dave’s “body,” a skilled crewperson (average height: one and three-quarters inches), sporting an insignia depicting a specific part of Dave’s anatomy, mans a high tech console controlling Dave’s movements.

As Dave – that is, those inside Dave – slowly navigates his way through these physical challenges, they begin to experience something with even more profound effects. A glimmer of emotion sweeps over the crew, who hail from a place that discourages emotion and individuality. Dave is changing – from the inside-out, and from the outside-in.
