Description: GOATS, follows 15-year old Ellis, a grounded, intelligent young man, as he is getting ready to leave his luxurious but eclectic home in the foothills of Tucson for his freshman year at Gates Academy, an East Coast prep school, and his estranged father's alma mater. This means leaving behind Wendy, his flakey, new age mother and the only real father figure he has ever had, Goat Man. Hilarious and poignant; GOATS is a witty reversal of the coming of age formula, a beautifully honest portrayal of life with its rough edges, awkward moments and non-endings.
