''Ten-Inch Hero'' is a 2007 independent romantic comedy surrounding the quirky Elisabeth Harnois, Danneel Harris, JensenAckles, Clea [=DuVall=], and others. Piper, a young 20something, arrives in Santa Cruz, looking for the baby she gave up for adoption when she was a teenager. While she searches, she works at a sandwich shop with its own set of colorful workers. There's the [[CloudCuckooLander eccentric]] Priestly, who's personality reflects in his loud clothing and even louder hair. His coworkers are the contrasting [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] Jen, who has a secret online romance, and [[AllWomenAreLustful sex-loving]] Tish. Rounding them out is the [[CoolOldGuy chill]], laid-back shop owner Trucker. As the film progresses, the issues the main cast have involving unrequited love and making the right decisions are put to the test.
