A young man scarred by a difficult upbringing takes a job as a photographer for the doctor who put his mother in an insane asylum, and together they set out on a tour of American mental hospitals to promote the art of lobotomy. After the bleak black comedies THE COMEDY (BIFF 2012) and ENTERTAINMENT, Rick Alverson returns with a seductive and disturbing journey through the US of the 1950s, featuring Tye Sheridan and an all star cast of character actors led by Jeff Golblum, Denis Lavant and Udo Kier.
