“NUTS!” is the mostly-true story of Dr. John Romulus Brinkley, who in 1917 discovers that he can cure impotence by transplanting goat testicles into men. After that, the story only gets weirder…

Using hand-drawn animated reenactments, interviews, archival footage, and a seriously unreliable narrator, NUTS! traces Brinkley’s rise from poverty and obscurity to the heights of celebrity, wealth and influence. Along the way, he transplants thousands of goat testicles; amasses an enormous fortune; is (sort of) elected Governor of Kansas; builds the world’s most powerful radio station; and generally annoys the heck out of the establishment. Doc Brinkley led an audacious life in which he conned everybody and made a disgraceful amount of money. How he does it, and what happens when it all comes crashing down, is the story of NUTS!
