Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down Syndrome, is living in a nursing home. He dreams of freedom and a career as a professional wrestler. So, Zak decides to run away. During his escape, Zak meets Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), who is also on his own journey of escape. A special friendship forms between the two as they embark on a journey through the beautiful North Carolina coastline. Pursuing their dreams is not always easy, but what is more important, the destination or the journey there?
