With Andy’s (Sheridan) mother is confined to an institution, he has lived in the shadow of his stoic father.

When they arrive at a California mountain town, a growing center of the New Age movement, they encounter an unconventional French healer who requests a lobotomy for his own daughter, Susan.
The film is directed by Rick Alverson (Entertainment) from a script he co-wrote with Dustin Guy Defa (Person to Person) and Colm O’Leary (The Comedy). Hannah Gross, Denis Lavant, and Udo Kier co-star alongside Sheridan and Goldblum.
