''The Shopping Cart Man'' is a return to good, old-fashioned warm-and-fuzzy American values. It is slice of Americana from the 1970s. A family on a cross-country road trip to spend Christmas with their grandmother learn what it means to be modern day Good Samaritans when they encounter a lost soul whom they first pity, then befriend, and eventually learn to love. The plot thickens when the man begins suffering troubling flashbacks of his forgotten past. When they eventually part, the man goes on a personal quest to discover who he is and how he came to be homeless. Inspired by actual events, this story will touch your heart and make you ponder what tremendous impact little acts of kindness can do for others.
