In 1930s, a young boy named Jonathan Quick decides not to fulfill his practical parents' dream of becoming a doctor. Instead, he takes the advice of a strange mystical little troll, "Mother Nature's Only Son," who claims that if he buys a nice new car and keeps his treasured childhood possessions with him, he will be free of work, rat race and family. Decades pass and by 1955 Jonathan's life has only gotten worse. He chooses to stay a dreamer no matter what and by the 1980s, he's become a broken shell of an old man contemplating suicide. However, that's when he finally gets a break. Is it too little, too late, or a dream come true?
