Jack Palmer is a social worker whose job has taken precedence over his personal life. Mainly, his job is to help four mentally challenged men live regular lives in a home. They consist of: Norman, who works at a donut shop and has a thing for keys; Barry, who thinks he is a golf pro and doesn't communicate well with his father; Arnold, who is into all things Russian and has a habit of spending money; and Lucien, who is into Spider Man and must testify before the state senate. Jack wants to help them, but he also thinks it is time to move on with his life. The hard part is trying to say goodbye to the guys he cares about. Written by

I think that this film was brilliant I couldn't take my eye's off the screen. I had seen most of the actors from this film in other films in the past and thought they were good actors and actresses but after watching this I had to change my mind and say they are brilliant. The story is brilliant and moving showing people with different abilities and how they and there families cope with them and it is true to life, if you get the chance to watch this film I think you will feel the same as I did and that you would love to make a difference to people's lives just as the characters in this movie made me feel. If you enjoyed rain man, regarding henry then I strongly suggest you watch this film even if you did enjoy these films give it a go it absolutely brilliant.
