From a screenplay by Shia LaBeouf, based on his own experiences, this extraordinary film brings to life a young actor's stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his father. 

Fictionalising his childhood ascent to stardom, and subsequent adult crash-landing into rehab and recovery, LaBeouf takes on the daring and therapeutic challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon. Director Alma Har'el's feature narrative debut is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between filmmaker and subject, exploring art as therapy and imagination as hope.

Running time: 1h55, including ads and trailers.
