Based on actor Shia LaBeouf's own script, the film tells the story of his tumultuous childhood and growing up, the path to fame, and his eventual breakdown in adulthood. LaBeouf rose to the considerable, yet therapeutic challenge and portrayed his own abusive father. He attempts to reconcile with him through the film and rediscover his inner balance. This biographical drama explores the therapeutic possibilities of art and shows imagination as a way to preserve hope.
