Sam leaps into the body of Jimmy LaMotta a mentally disabled man, with the IQ of a 12 year-old, who has recently moved in with his brother Frank and his family. It's 1964 and there is little tolerance for integrating men like Jimmy into mainstream society. At home, Jimmy's sister-in-law is worried having him around, particularly the effect he may be having on their son. Jimmy manages to get a job on the docks with his brother but faces a great deal of prejudice from some fellow workers, particularly from a man named Blue. Blue has a secret of his own, however.
