Ellis is the most adult member of his eccentric family at 15 years old. His mom is a New Age hippie that spends all of her time working on self-help rituals with her hustler boyfriend. His dad left home years ago and is more focused on his new wife and family. And then there's Goat Man, the goat-herding sage who has lived in their pool house since Ellis was a child, teaching him the meaning of stability, commitment, and expanding one's mind. When Ellis decides to leave Tucson to go to the same East Coast prep school that his father went to, he easily assimilates to his new environment - even gaining the attention of a local girl. But as he re?connects with his estranged father, he finds Goat Man's influence and his life out West thrown into stark contrast.
