Plot Summary & Review

Eddie Palmer is a former high school football standout and ex-felon who recently completed a 12-year sentence in prison. He lives with his grandma Vivian, who also looks after a flamboyant young boy named Sam on occasion.

Palmer eventually starts working as a janitor at the local school, and after Vivian’s death, he is forced to become Sam’s temporary guardian due to his mother Shelly’s frequent absences. Despite his initial aversion to Sam, Palmer quickly develops a bond with him, taking him to a high school football game and a bowling fundraiser, as well as developing a friendship with Sam’s teacher, Maggie.

Sam returns home one day, tears streaming down his face and makeup splattered all over his face. Palmer believes it was one of Sam’s classmates who did it, but it was actually one of his own pals (headed by Daryl) that did it. Palmer punches one of them in the face in a pub. Shelly returns to recover Sam, but Child Protective Services takes him away. Palmer applies for guardianship but is turned down because of his parole status. Sam is temporarily reunited with Shelly by the courts, but Palmer observes her abusive boyfriend severely beating both of them. Palmer intervenes and flees with the youngster after observing both of them doing narcotics in front of Sam.

Shelly calls the police and Palmer is accused of kidnapping. He brings the boy back and is arrested, with Sam crying that he wants to be with Palmer instead of his own mother. Seeing this, Shelly refuses to press charges and chooses to give Palmer parental custody of Sam.
