A young boy with Down syndrome runs away to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional wrestler in this good-natured, heartfelt adventure comedy-drama, a modern-day spin on Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from writer/director duo Tyler Nilson and Michael Shwartz and the producers of Little Miss Sunshine.

Zak (performer, teacher and disability advocate Zack Gottsagen, around whom the film was crafted) lives in a nursing home but dreams of becoming a professional wrestler. Running away in hopes of reaching the wrestling school of his idol, the Salt Water Redneck, he meets Tyler, a small time outlaw, on the road – and together they team up, winding through deltas, eluding capture, drinking whisky, finding God, catching fish, and convincing Eleanor, a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them.
