at the Studio Movie Grill

The filmmakers spent six years discovering Bob's amazing life story, revealing in the process, the sometimes shameless manner in which we treat our homeless citizens and also celebrating the community which became Bob's family. Filmmaker Lee says "Bob is one of the most well-known and polarizing personalities in town, often called the most famous wandering person in east Dallas. The myths and legends surrounding him are numerous - tales of a mother who hit him over the head with a frying pan, of a childhood spent in a mental institution, of a missing $86 million inheritance. What is undeniable is that Bob is a 57-year old man who has spent his life defying the odds. He has been betrayed, abandoned, beaten and abused, lived for years on the streets, yet though all of this, Bob refused to live in fear".

*There will be a Question & Answer Session with the filmmakers and 
Rev. Bruce Buchanan, Executive Director of The Stewpot, following the film.

Previously this movie has sold out at the Angelika Theatre during the
