    The Film

    Gannet, a 22-year old developmentally disabled young man with symptoms resembling autism, is unable to speak or walk unassisted. His friends are a close-knit group of artists and musicians looking for inspiration and space for their creativity. When Gannet moves out of his mother's house, he moves into their world . . . or is it the other way around? As these friends attempt to form a household together, they create an extraordinary world of interdependence and survival.
