Newcomer Zachary Gottsagen will co-star, as he lives with high-functioning Down syndrome and actually serves as the inspiration for the indie film.
Described as an adventure drama in the vein of a Mark Twain tale, the film follows Zak, a young man with Down syndrome who runs away from home to pursue his dream of becoming a professional wrestler. Along the way, Zak meets a small-time outlaw (LaBeouf) who becomes his unlikely friend and coach.
