Meet Bill Porter. A man of remarkable spirit. He'll touch your heart. He'll change your life.

Bill Porter knows he has little hope of landing a salesman job. To improve his prospects, he offers to take a sales territory nobody wants. It's nothing compared to what Bill faces every day. He has cerebral palsy.

William H. Macy portrays Bill, impaired in body but not in spirit as he makes his door to door salesman rounds - and impacts the lives of customers during a nearly 50 year career that often finds him a top his firm's sales charts. Kyra Sedgwick, Helen Mirren, and Kathy Baker play women who loom large in Bill's life. And others play the shoe shiners, waitresses, suburbanites, bus drivers and more inspired by him. Door to door. Heart to heart. Bill connects with people. So does this touching movie about his extraordinary life.
