An alpha New York City male is magically transformed into a beautiful girl, falls in love, and learns what it means to be a woman.
‘Sam’ is about love…and friendship – and what happens when the two collide in the weirdest possible way. It follows the journey of young, handsome New York City playboy Sam Wellman - man’s man and professional woman hater – and his relationship with Doc, his best (and only!) friend. One strange, drunken night Sam stumbles into an Old Curiosity Shop, where the elderly proprietor offers him tea along with sage advice on treasuring “the female of the species”. Sam awakens the next morning to find himself transformed into a woman. The wheel of Karma turns, and Sam – now Samantha – finds herself wandering in a bizarre new world in which she becomes the object of her lascivious boss’ unwanted affections and is forced to take ‘girl lessons’ under the strict tutelage of the persnickety fashion coach, Alexander Blondell. Meanwhile, her friendship with Doc deepens to the point where sparks come dangerously close to flying. Can Samantha and Doc remain friends? Or will the growing chemistry between them end up destroying one of the great ‘bromances’ of all time?
