Synopsis
An unusual tale about the cathartic friendship between two men from radically different worlds. Harry is a salesman extraordinaire seemingly in control of his professional life. Yet, outside the confines of his office, Harry's world is deeply chaotic and he is trapped by his own emotional inertia. One day Harry meets George, a young man with Down Syndrome who has just escaped from the facility into which he has been assigned. "Me Mongol," says George by way of an introduction... When Harry wants to return George to his home, he can't get rid of him. These two men with nothing in common become inseparable and together embark on an unpredictable, sometimes delirious and deeply moving journey of self-discovery.
