The Sundance Film Festival moves to South Park after its original locale has turned from a quaint mountain town into another Los Angeles. At first, the town is happy to have all the people there boosting the local economy, but the Hollywood types start to impose. This is most harmful to Mr. Hankey, who has to live in the sewer when it's not Christmas. All the extra waste has disrupted his environment, causing him to slowly die. Kyle convinces him to come to the surface to confront the festival chairman.
