18-year-old Lake has a sweet activist girlfriend, but one day discovers he has an unusual attraction for the elderly. Fate conspires to land him a summer job at a nursing home where he develops a tender relationship with Mr. Peabody. Discovering that the patients are being over-medicated to make them easier to manage, Lake decides to wean him off hismedication and help him escape, resulting in a humorous and heartfelt road trip that strengthens their bond.The always provocative Bruce LaBruce is back with a new romantic comedy (of sorts).
