What starts out as a freak show ends up a poignant tale of tragedy, redemption, and the boon of taxidermy.

Finders Keepers sees the tragedy in Whisnant's egomania. As he agrees to a tacky reality show, we realize he's peddling something more valuable than a leg - he's selling his soul.

Audience Reviews for Finders Keepers

Although some of its entertainment value comes from the bizarre story alone, it succeeds in telling it in an unbiased way, while also humanizing its subjects
