READ MORE: NEXT FEST: 7 Questions with Bryan Carberry & Clay Tweel, Directors of ‘Finders Keepers’
Nothing is quite as unsettling as finding something unexpected, especially someone else’s leg in your grill. Bryan Carberry and Clay Tweel’s “Finders Keepers” explores this strangely true story through the eyes of the two men involved: John Wood and Shannon Wisnant.
When Wood’s amputated leg is found in a grill sold at a North Carolina auction, he finds himself dead center in a media frenzy. While he finds this attention to be his shot at doing something meaningful in his otherwise disappointing life, things take a turn when the leg’s buyer, Shannon Whisnant, sues to regain its custody. Wood’s drug addiction, initiated by his dysfunctional family, worsens and forces him to live on the streets. One more twist gives Wood one last shot at being whole.
“Finders Keepers” will screen in select theaters starting on September 25th. Check out the trailer for the documentary above.
