Handsome 18 year old Lake has a cool girlfriend, but holds a secret: he has an extraordinary attraction to the elderly. When his mother starts working at a home for elderly, she fixes her son with a job too. For Lake, taking care of the elderly and washing their bodies, is paradise. One of these men is Mr. Peabody, a man
with a sharp mind and life wisdom, and the two develop a delicate relationship that surpasses that of a caregiver and patient.
Legendary cult queer filmmaker, Bruce LaBruce directed this human and emotional film about a sensational topic and manages with great wisdom and fine humor to avoid every bump on the way to an impressive outcome.
