When Virgil is stripped of his lab coat, he comes face-to-face with the strange inhabitants of an unfamiliar world: that of artisanal goat cheese. Discovering his passion, he buys Artois, a scrawny young buck, putting his operation in motion. Now all Virgil has to do is figure out how to explain to his girlfriend that he spent the money he was saving for her engagement ring on a goat.
