  • A boy appears in the world in his birthday suit, only alone in the woods, as an adolescent without any memories, history or even a belly-button, only some instincts, as if he wasn't even born, and enough dexterity to handle a rattle-snake bare-handed. Just for being naked in public, he's handcuffed and committed to juvenile detention, where employee Lou Daniels renames the 'John Doe' Kyle, after his own brightest son, for he shows as much intelligence as lack of education in everything, from using daily objects to human behavior, a painful learning process among cocky thugs. Psychologist Nicole Trager takes Kyle home 'till Monday' as she promises kind husband Stephen. Their own kids, who weren't consulted at all, are understandably all but eager to take in and help caring for another of ma's stray weirdos, but gradually discover Kyle's clumsiness is just lack of experience, his nature as kind as his IQ high. Young Josh shows an open mind, quickly finds his new bunking buddy fascinating and makes friends. Even arrogant daughter Lori learns to respect Kyle, who follows her to an orgiastic party -hell for him- where she sees her boyfriend Declan make out with another, and is surprisingly saved at a police raid by Kyle, who does an amazing job learning on the spot and shows striking talents, such as working with computers, picking up English and self-defense beyond the trained cop's arresting skills. Then ma asks a family vote whether Kyle, professionally an unprecedented challenge for her, may stay longer...

  • A family welcomes a lost boy into their home and soon discovers that he possesses powerful talents they can't explain.
