Summary
Elm and North explores the life of Morris Proot, a school bus driver who is slowly turning to bone. With his girlfriend gone and his best friend dead, Proot sinks into isolation after a fight on his school bus forces him into a mind-numbing job as a crossing guard. Seeking comfort, he reaches out to an enigmatic University of Pennsylvania genetics professor, the foremost researcher of his disease. But when Proot's attempts at communication go unanswered, he downspirals into frustration and wretchedness. In an act of final despair, he travels to Philadelphia for a face-to-face confrontation with the one man he feels owes him answers, solace, and maybe even a little hope. The story of a lonely man's battle against a horrific disease, Elm & North is of course a comedy
