More about the movie: Sam Piazza overcame tremendous obstacles, and now uses his life to help others. He works tirelessly as a volunteer Ambassador for Best Buddies International, volunteers at Gigi’s Playhouse, has earned a black belt in karate, participated in the ROTC, was the volunteer basketball team manager in high school and active in the Special Olympics.

In 2009, he caught the eye of filmmaker and fellow Tampa native, Renee Warmack, who read an article in The Tampa Tribune about how he was crowned Homecoming King at Gaither High School in Tampa.

The documentary “Because of Sam” will show the world that being different can be difficult, yet the conflicts, triumphs and epiphanies that occur in the life of a person with disabilities can serve as catalysts for positive change in the lives of other people.

This movie will change the viewers’ belief systems from that of doubting the capability of people with disabilities, to believing that they can achieve great things. Furthermore, the viewers will reflect on their own lives and be inspired to tap into their potential to pursue their goals. For more information: BecauseofSam.com
