Based on the Governor General Literary Award winning play of the same name by Michael Healey, The Drawer Boy is a period drama set in 1972. It takes place on a farm in rural Ontario, where two farmers Angus and Morgan live a solitary life, as they deal with the memory issues Angus suffers from. When a young actor from Toronto shows up on their doorstep hoping to learn more about them for a theatre project, his questions and actions change everything for the three men forever.
