Imaginary movie

The Hallmark Zone. Troubled by the state of the world, a gentle scholar travels to a quaint town to watch the making of a holiday movie. Pressed into service for a cocoa-shop crowd scene, the scholar learns the true meaning of figurant, and discovers that his new reality is one that he cannot — and does not want to — escape.

Then we hear the ominous sound of the twilight zone music as the scholar realizes all present are trapped on an island in a giant sea of fondant.

P.S. Oh, wait, you said he doesn't want to escape anyway, so lose the spooky music in my scene.

A gingerbread island?

There should be scary music as he realizes that he can’t leave. But then he comes around. More cocoa!
