A road movie with fairytale qualities follows in the footsteps of Mark Twain and is a heart-warming plea for friendship. 22-year old Zak (Zack Gottsagen) wants to escape from the care home he was put in because of his Down syndrome. One night, he manages to get away and, dressed only in his underpants, plunges into the greatest adventure of his life. On his trip he runs into shady Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), who’s on the run himself and doesn’t need a deadweight clinging to him. But the odd couple become friends and manage to persuade care home worker Eleanor (Dakota Johnson) to join them. But the pursuers are closing in…
