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

Everyone remembers the first time they made love, but no one ever talks about it. This film good naturedly breaks that taboo. A diverse group of Americans of all ages and backgrounds recall their experiences -- some funny, some sad, some disappointing, some ecstatic.

There are recollections of backseat escapades, innocent wedding nights, AIDS-conscious encounters, starry-eyed meetings
