In November of 1920, 7-year-old Bill Sackter walked through the looking glass into a state institution for the retarded. He never saw his family again. 44 years later, a much older Bill re-entered the world, hungry for all it could offer. With a job washing dishes at a country club, and a wig to cover his bald head, Bill met an intensely curious young man fresh out of college - Barry Morrow. "A man needs three things in life: A good job, a good home and a buddy." Morrow became that buddy, and learned to see the world through Bill's eyes, colored by his boundless reserve of good cheer and goofy humor. He tells Bill's story in this highly emotional performance.
