Ellis (Played by Graham Phillips) is the most adult member of his eccentric family at 15 years old. His mom (Played by Vera Farmiga) is a New Age hippie that spends all of her time working on self-help rituals with her hustler boyfriend (Played by Justin Kirk). His dad (Played by Ty Burrell) left home years ago and is more focused on his new wife (Played by Keri Russell) and family. And, then there’s Goat Man (Played by David Duchovny), the goat-herding sage who has lived in their pool house since Ellis was a child, teaching him the meaning of stability, commitment, and expanding one’s mind. When Ellis decides to leave Tucson to go to the same East Coast prep school that his father went to, he easily assimilates to his new environment – even gaining the attention of a local girl (Played by Dakota Johnson). But as he re-connects with his estranged father, he finds Goat Man’s influence and his life out West thrown into stark contrast.
