In a small town, an auto mechanic named Benny is devoted to taking care of his mentally ill sister, Joon, who can barely function alone in the real world despite being a talented artist. This relatively stable situation is shaken up when Benny is obliged in a poker game to welcome another player's relative, Sam, to his home for a few days. When Sam arrives, he quickly makes an impression with his quietly eccentric ways which emulate the antics of the great silent movie comedian, Buster Keaton. Without Benny's full knowledge, Sam and Joon find themselves drawn to each other to the fullest degree. However when Benny finds out, it creates a rift in the siblings as they struggle to accept their relationship is profoundly changing with the presence of this odd newcomer. Written by

Did You Know?
During the filming of the scene where Benny rushes to Joon's aid after she is put into an ambulance, a house party was happening less than a block away from the shooting in Spokane's Peaceful Valley area (it was a day scene actually filmed at night). After hours of re-takes, Jeremiah S. Chechik
bribed the local revelers with a cornucopia of food from the crew's food tent, which kept them pacified long enough to finish the scene (at around midnight). See more
In the scene when they are leaving the park, Benny is supposed to thank Sam for his uplifting performance, but before he starts to say thank you, Sam starts saying "no, no, thank you", causing Benny to have to squeeze his comment in while Sam is still talking. See more
Hey. Where's Sam?
I didn't mean to kick him out. I mean, I didn't kick him out, he just - he just left.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What - What happened? Did something happen?
He just - he just left. He was - he was in the air and-and-and - with a thing and - that was really loud. It was really loud. And all- I-I just kept seeing... He didn't mean to do it.
Do it? What? What- Did he- What did he do?
He cleaned the house.
