Mentally challenged Mingo, 25 years old and still living with his mother, regards the world around him with childlike enthusiasm, especially the world of women. After a sexual awakening, he becomes a guileless Casanova in his small town, to the resentment and unease of its male inhabitants. Part parable, part sexy romp, The Middle of the World portrays the chain of events that occurs when sexual and small-town politics collide.
