A man loses his leg in an accident. Another man accidentally buys it at a North Carolina auction. The story only gets stranger from there. This is a rare, truly laugh-out-loud doc. An expertly crafted narrative gets under the skin of lives that are forever changed when a crazy small-town feud becomes a national media circus. The result is both hilarious and tragic. An astonishing, stranger-than-fiction tale of greed, ego and redemption.
On the surface, Finders Keepers is an odd and funny look into the lives of two interesting characters from North Carolina who fight over the ownership of a severed foot /leg. Although entertaining, this documentary is much more than just an out of the ordinary situation. The deeper we get into the background of the story and its characters, we witness a struggle for fame, forgiveness and family. Issues of drug addiction and childhood trauma appear as we see a deeper story that deals with regrets and poor decisions that have created a major journey that both characters travel through. An uplifting ending helps bring closure where it is much needed. Still, the odd scenario which Finders Keepers showcase, may not find a larger audience that this documentary deserves.
