Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol.
Due to the recently tightening of corona measures at the TU/e, the outdoor movie "The peanut butter falcon" will, unfortunately, be cancelled on September 3. We will do our best to organize a new outdoor movie for you, as soon as the situation allows it. So keep an eye on our website, Instagram and Facebook page and digital newsletter to stay up to date about the programs you can visit/watch.
A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (Shia 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 (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak's return, to join them on their journey.
