As Dawson abandons his lifelong dream of becoming a filmmaker and works two jobs to pay off his huge credit card debt, Joey decides that Dawson must realize his dream, and rallies everyone she knows to help him begin production on his movie, which is the autobiography of his life. Joey forcibly recruits Harley Heston and her boyfriend, Patrick, to play the roles of Joey and Pacey while Audrey volunteers for the role of Miss Jacobs. Gale even calls Todd Carr to assist with the production and Doug Witter volunteers for security, whom is now the acting sheriff of Capeside since Mr. Witter is apparently too sick to work anymore. Meanwhile, Pacey is newly inspired to raise the funds that are needed by going to various local businesses to raise money and at one meets a crush from his past. As filming wraps, Jen, Jack and Grams say goodbye to everyone as they leave for New York City where Jen and Jack transfer to NYU. Joey acts as a mentor to get Dawson and Pacey to make up while she finally achieves her life-long dream of going to Paris.
