Jake (41) has reached a point in his life where he's in desperate need of a change in his circumstances, both financial and emotional. He has recurring visions of a gorilla that he cannot quite understand. Will it be related to his profound need to feel free? In this search, he hatches a plan to rob a man and for this he hires a bumbling "professional" thief, Gummo (42). Things do not go as planned and Jake will be involved in a situation that will forever change his life and family ties.
