Movie Synopsis:

This unique documentary follows Otto Baxter, a 35-year-old filmmaker with Down Syndrome. Over a period of six years, he writes and directs a foul-mouthed, autobiographical comedy-horror-musical set in Victorian London. Otto, who has always struggled to explain how he feels, uses his film The Puppet Asylum to explore his birth, adoption, and his epic battle with 'The Master' - an evil magician hell-bent on controlling his life.

During the filmmaking process Otto's birth mother dies and he finds himself confronting life in the real world, including his future. Otto's filmmaker friends Bruce Fletcher and Peter Beard help him to bring his vision to life, but also learn more about his unique perspective on the world and how they can play a role in his future.
