A teenage boy with a fetish for elderly men lands a summer job at a retirement community, where his growing bond with a rebellious resident leads to a life altering road trip. Despite the fact that Lake (Pier-Gabriel Lajoie) and his girlfriend Désirée (Katie Boland) have been together for a long time, lately Lake has been wondering whether his obsession with old men may have a sexual component. When Lake's mother lands him a summer job at a local retirement community, any lingering doubts are laid to rest as the conflicted teen starts to fall for Mr. Peabody (Walter Borden), a patient who regales the smitten young man with romanticized tales of his youth. Disturbed by the discovery that the patients are being administered psychotropic drugs to keep them complacent, and determined to fulfill Mr. Peabody's wish to see the Pacific Ocean one last time, Lake carefully begins to cut the dosage before helping the old man stage a daring escape. Later, posing as a boy and his grandfather as they make their way to the sea, Lake and Mr. Peabody learn that true love doesn't discriminate by age.
