SYNOPSIS: COME AS YOU ARE follows three young men with disabilities who flee their overbearing parents on a road trip to a brothel in Montreal, where they cater to people with special needs, in order to lose their virginity and embrace their independence. With the help of Sam, their tough-as-nails nurse driver. Equal parts hilarious and heartwarming, the film is inspired by the incredible true story of Asta Philpot and is a remake of the 2011 award winning hit Belgian film HASTA LA VISTA.
