Sam Sullivan was a local curiosity. He was the quadriplegic city councillor in the pinstripe suit. He was also the guy who gave money to crack and heroin addicts, so they wouldn't steal or prostitute themselves. Opponents call him a do-nothing politician, and a nut. The media write him off, and everyone tiptoes around the issue of his disability.
Director Joe Moulins follows Sullivan through his remarkable bid to be Vancouver's mayor. Blending the rough and tumble of the campaign trail with tender moments from Sullivan's personal life, Citizen Sam is equal parts love story, thriller, comedy and confessional. An eye-opening portrait of an unforgettable character.
