Event Details

“Mr. What” is a terrific movie named for the question Mattiesko Wuopio gets every time he says his name: “What!?” He always replies, “Exactly!” Mr. What spent the last 22 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, yet lives with the stigma of jail time as he re-enters society in tiny Tecumseh, Michigan. He rents a home once he’s out of jail, and becomes close to the homeowner’s son Herman, called “Bo.” Though Bo’s mother doesn’t trust Mr. What, he is there to help Bo, his sister Heather, and his mom, too. Mr. What is also loyal to his father, who has Alzheimer’s disease and is about to be placed in a nursing home. Mr. What writes and sings a song for his father; a miracle occurs when his father recovers for a few moments and remembers his son.
