A quixotic and magical modern fable about discovering life, liberty and the pursuit of lawn ornaments.
Meet Al Fountain (JOHN TURTURRO), electrical engineer. Too punctual. Too precise. Too routine. But propelled by peculiar hallucinations and the discovery of his first gray hair, Al realizes that something's not quite right. Compelled to revisit the sight of a happy childhood memory, his journey leads him to an encounter with Kid (SAM ROCKWELL), a self-styled woodsman in a Davy Crockett outfit. Kid is everything Al is not. Free-spirited and eccentric. Like oil and water, Kid's loose-limbed way of life is completely at odds with Al's rigid sense of order.
Little by little, the endearing Kid strikes a cord with Al that resonates to the very base of his soul. Kid unknowingly teaches Al how to lift the lid off the box he's built around himself.
