An intimate and often funny portrait of Peter Lewis, a charismatic man with Hydrocephalus,who has overcome great obstacles on the way to becoming the resident personality of New Canaan, CT. Peter shares his abounding warmth and charm with all those he encounters, giving an inviting face to this exclusive, country club suburb. Diagnosed with Hydrocephalus at birth, a rare brain defect considered untreatable at the time, Peter was given only five years to live. The doctors rendered him a 'vegetable' and had him institutionalized. Fifty years later, Peter celebrates his independence and is on a first name basis with almost everyone in town. Written by
