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?
The exterior of the cafe where Ruthie works (with the dancing rolls scene and others) is the Milk Bottle Cafe in Spokane, WA. Oddly enough, the interior was shot in an entirely different restaurant, Ferguson's Café. The two restaurants are actually next door to each other. Even weirder, that's not the only building shaped like a milk bottle in Spokane. See more
When Joon plays poker, she asks for two cards--one can be seen as being a black card. When she shows her hand, she has five hearts. 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.
