This story is nothing short of a modern-day Huckleberry Finn adventure. Zak, a young man with Down syndrome, runs away from his caretakers to chase his dream of becoming a professional wrestler. Through bizarre circumstances, Tyler, a small time outlaw on the run, becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together, they wind through backwater deltas, elude capture, drink whiskey, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor, a nursing home employee, to join them on their journey.

What we think: This fantastic and intimate drama, which is blessed with a truly impressive cast, revolves around the star of the film, Zack Gottsagen, who overcomes the limitations of Down syndrome and shines as the lead actor.

Expected to attend: co-directors Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz
