Meet Jeff Towne. He is a beer drinking, porno-consuming, wrestling fanatic with Down’s Syndrome. He lies, he cheats, he steals, he fondles women. In short, he is a lot more like the rest of us than we care to admit. His days are divided between his filthy home that he shares with his 98 year old, wheelchair-bound foster mother (who pins their financial future on the certainty they will win the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes) and a mall movie theater, where the employees alternately mock and care for him.
They have become a bizarre surrogate family for Jeff, providing him with all the vices his mother so desperately ignores – to her, Jeff is a good Christian boy with a heart of gold. As this shocking and hilarious documentary will show, Jeff frequents strip joints, bum-rushes celebrities, cares of his horrifying blackened diseased foot, and gets his few remaining teeth extracted. One thing is for sure: you will never see anything life Jefftowne. And you have never met anyone like Jeff.
