Eli, an outcast teen, connects with his isolated grandfather for the first time and uncovers his surprising past when he makes his grandpa the subject of an animated project for school. As the art project takes shape with the help of a musician friend, the two become closer when his grandfather reveals how his life was spared as a boy when he lost his entire family in World War II. The Samuel Project explores a powerful story about the universal struggle for acceptance and opportunity with a profound relevance to today’s headlines.
