Storyline

Sam (Michael Jeske), is a young man who has special needs. He lives with his mother (Kelly Zierath.) Several years earlier, his sister Madison (Megan Ann Jacobs) left home to find a life for herself as an artist in Door County, Wisconsin. One day, when Madison arrives at her place of work, the Palmer Art Gallery, she learns that her mother has died. This news immediately changes both Madison's and Sam's lives. After their mother's funeral Sam comes to live with Madison. She rents the top floor of an old farm house from Roy Harrison (David Ruprecht.) Roy is a senior citizen set in his ways. He has little time for his peculiar tenant and her brother. A series of circumstances brings Roy and Sam closer together. Sam also realizes that his sister too may have special needs. As Sam says, "Some people's needs are on the outside for everyone to see. While others keep them on the inside hidden from view." Sam's passion is shoes. He knows everything about them. He is inspired to hold a shoe ... Written by Steven F. Zambo

Awful except for comedic value
21 July 2018 | by shawneileenSee all my reviews

This movie clearly has fake reviews. Just watching the trailer told me that. But if you want a laugh - watch the first scene. It is hilarious. The acting in this movie is atrocious. The only person who has the remotest acting ability is the actor who played Roy. The plot has more holes than swiss cheese. We sadly watched the movie in its entirety and that hour and forty minutes felt like twelve hours. It was just awful except for a few comedic moments that were clearly not intended. #ishedead
