Summary Sam Dawson has the mental capacity of a 7-year-old. He works at a Starbucks and is obsessed with the Beatles. Sam has a daughter with a homeless woman who abandons them both as soon as they leave the hospital. He names his daughter Lucy Diamond (after the Beatles song) and raises her alone. But as she herself reaches the age of seven, Sam's limitations start to become a problem at school: Lucy is intentionally holding back to avoid looking smarter than her father. When the authorities take her away, Sam shames high-priced lawyer Rita Harrison into taking his case pro bono. In the process, he teaches her a great deal about love
