Movie Details

A conservative radio host and aspiring politician experiences an acute crisis of conscience after losing his memory and experiencing life among the less fortunate in this thought-provoking drama. Thomas Bach (Victor Browne) likes to think of himself as a straight shooter. His right-wing radio show is a big hit among Minneapolis Tea Partiers, and recently he's announced a plan to retire from radio and take a shot at a seat in the U.S. Senate. Shortly after arriving in Los Angeles to iron out the kinks in his campaign, however, Thomas becomes the victim of a violent assault that robs him of his memory. As a result, the wayward political hopeful forgets he's a diabetic, falling seriously ill as he seeks shelter in skid row. Over the course of the next week, Thomas becomes a true member of the homeless community, rediscovering the meaning of compassion as he receives help and in turn helps others. Later, as Thomas' memory returns, he finds himself at a crucial crossroads: Does he parlay his experience into a triumphant campaign story that's sure to win votes and launch a successful political career, or does he finally admit that he's been wrong all along and use his newfound wisdom to enact genuine change? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
