This lovable and funny Mark Twain-inspired adventure begins when Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down’s syndrome, runs away from the nursing home where he has been placed by the state. When he meets small-time outlaw Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), they pair up for an unforgettable journey to elude capture and seek Zak’s idol, professional wrestler The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Hayden Church). Searching for them is Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee who is tasked with Zak’s prompt return.
