Sam is about to meet his celebrity idol… the only problem is, Sam works in a hospital morgue… and his idol is dead.
Sam loves his job working in a morgue, almost as much as he loves his celebrity idol, Alfred Molina. So, when Alfred Molina arrives on Sam’s cold hard slab (a potential victim of some nefarious seals), Sam’s world is thrown into chaos and despair.
'SAM DID IT' is a dark comedy that explores how a fan’s world can be impacted by the loss of their favorite idol.
A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:
“Most people have someone in the spotlight they idolize; a celebrity crush, a cherished band, a loved sports figure. When we lose those people, there’s often a mass outpouring of grief. People change their social media avatars, tell stories about how their work impacted their lives, how much they loved them…
I personally felt like 2016 and early 2017 was a particularly relentless time in terms of the phenomenal artists that we lost. Even though we may never have met those people, the impact of their loss can still feel deeply personal and moving to us. We grew up admiring their work and their artistry. Their songs or movies and their achievements can mean so much to us, defining key moments in our life.
I wanted 'SAM DID IT' to explore those feelings, through a tinted glass of humor… which I can’t help but do.”
