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

In the restaurant scene between Sam and Joon, as they are discussing raisins, Sam says, "It's a shame about raisins." This is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the video for the Lemonhead's hit, "It's a Shame about Ray," which was released the year before and in which Johnny Depp
starred. (At the end of the video, Johnny can be seen carrying a curved cane almost identical to Sam's.) See more
