A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON tells the story of Zak (Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them on their journey.
About Indie Films Fernie:

Features are chosen based on merit and are shining examples of excellence in directorship, cinematography, acting, costume, set design, music and technical achievement from International Independent Production Companies. Past hits screenings have resulted in the film being held over for an extended showing due to popularity, including the sweeping biopic 'Mongol,' intense travel drama 'Into the Wild' and Academy Award darling 'The Artist.'
