In this “hysterical, insightful, and genuinely empathetic” (Variety) documentary feature from the makers of King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, cutthroat North Carolina bargain hunter Shannon Whisnant refuses to return amputee John Wood’s embalmed leg after he finds it in a used grill at a local auction. The televised, Judge Judy-style courtroom battle that ensues becomes fodder for tabloids and “news of the weird” exposes across the nation. A Grand Jury Prize nominee at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, this captivating contest of wills is an astonishing stranger-than-fiction tale that inspires laughter and sympathy in equal measure.
Directed by Bryan Carberry and Clay Tweel
