A joyous and uplifting slice of timeless Americana that celebrates the friendship of three unexpectedly kindred spirits. Stars Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, Zack Gottsagen, John Hawkes, Jon Bernthal Thomas Haden Church and Bruce Dern.

A modern Mark Twain-esque adventure in which a young man with Down syndrome runs away to pursue his dream of becoming a professional wrestler.

With no money, map or even pants, Zak’s plans soon come to a screeching halt, just like down-on-his-luck fisherman Tyler’s battered fishing boat. This chance meeting sets the pair on a path that introduces them to a world they never dreamed existed. Along with Eleanor, a conscientious aide from Zak’s residence who comes to retrieve him, they set sail for a once-in-a-lifetime journey on a makeshift raft through an unfamiliar and extraordinary landscape.
