A classic tale of two great friends and their struggle to live the American dream. Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the “fat of the land” have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It’s Lennie’s obsessions with things soft and cuddly that have made George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. But when an unexpected death occurs, their dreams take a drastic and tragic turn.
