It's a richer portrait than we might expect in an abysmal era of reality TV.

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

A strange tale about two individuals from the fringes of society who debate ownership over a severed leg. The two are so unbelievable that they just breathe life into one of the strangest documentaries that I have come across.
