Eccentric actor Crispin Glover makes his feature directorial debut with this Dadaist film experiment about a snail-obsessed boy searching for a way home while struggling with his racist inner psyche. Featuring a cast comprised almost entirely of Down Syndrome-affected actors, What Is It? is the first installment of the surreal "It" trilogy. The second installment, entitled It is Fine! Everything is Fine, followed in 2007.
