"NUTS!" is the mostly-true story of John Romulus Brinkley, a Kansas doctor who in 1917 discovers that he can cure impotence by transplanting goat testicles into men. From there, the story only gets weirder.
"NUTS!" is a provocation to the status-quo of documentary storytelling. It uses an outlandish story as an opportunity to question how “truths” can be invented by crafty storytellers, and what responsibility nonfiction filmmakers have to reveal the tricks of their craft.
