Gordon Brody is an aspiring animator in Hollywood with a lot of ambition, but a really stupid idea for a series. Disappointed, he moves back home to Oregon with his mother and verbally abusive father, Jim, who browbeats him at every chance. Gordon gets revenge on his father by accusing him of molesting Gordon's brother Freddy, who happens to be 25 years old. With his father out of the picture, Gordon's fortunes begin to turn. He attempts to sell an animated series based on his family life, "Zebras in America." Jim tries to sabotage his son's plans, but instead aids in his success. Things really begin to spin out of control just when Jim and Gordon seem ready to reconcile.
