In this subversive, comic extravaganza, Dublin-born film school dropout Trevor finds himself washed up in New York where he answers an ad to work as a companion to Ed, a wheelchair-bound teenager with muscular dystrophy. Ed's family is extremely wealthy and extremely dysfunctional. Ed's father, a guilt-ridden judge, rarely emerges from his dusty study. Ed's mother is morbidly obese, sexually perverse and rarely gets out of bed. A bizarre yet touching friendship develops between Trevor and Ed, both of whom are in need of someone to show understanding.
