The Saint – 2017 Easterseals Disability Film Challenge Entry


[MUSIC PLAYING] [KNOCKING ON DOOR] [PANTING] Em. She’s still here. WOMAN: I’m so sorry, Emily. I just couldn’t
get out the door. Hey, most parents came at 8. But what’s two out of three? She showed up. I’ll be in the car. I deserved that. Yeah. You know, Mom, what you
do is pretty incredible. You’re kind of a saint. [MUSIC PLAYING] Saint. – Liam, you think I’m a saint? Yes. You do? Yes. [MUSIC PLAYING] Mom, can I have a snack? I didn’t eat breakfast. But you had all morning. I wasn’t hungry then. [SIGHS] OK. I got your back. Chocolates? It has almonds in it. And the almonds are an
excellent source of protein. Protein, mhm. Fair enough. [MUSIC PLAYING] Hey! Oh. Jeez. We’re trying to walk here. Oh. It’s OK. Soft spots are already
pieced together. It’s OK. (PATRONIZING)
Oh, you’re so cute. You could be– you could be a
professional baseball player. That’s right. That’s right. You’re so cute. How old is he? Is he three? He’s seven. He’s not a baby or
a dog or whatever you were doing with your voice. Let’s go, Liam. So sorry. It’s fine. You know, you’re
doing such great work. I– I love them. He’s “extra-able.” Just bless your heart. We’re fine, don’t worry. DAUGHTER (VOICEOVER):
Mom, can we have dessert? (IMPATIENT) Mom. We’ve had enough sugar today. But you said that
was for breakfast. You know what? There is this perfectly
good apple that nobody ate. So you can have that. (WHISPERING) No, no. Can we just get the check? Oh, it’s a very special
dessert for a very special guy. (HESITANT) OK. I said no ice cream. But it was so good. OK, how about I just take
Liam for a little while? No, he’s a Mathlete. He has to be at
Mathletics at 4:00. I’ll just take him
on a couple errands. And then we’ll meet
you at my place. You’d do that? Yeah. I just need the car keys. OK, all right. Working on a Saturday is hard. All right. It’s in there. OK. In the console. OK. Thank you. Don’t forget Liam. FRIEND: Right. Oh, sorry we’re late. We had an opportunity. Oh. Hey, Liam. You know what? I bet Miss Katie
would love to see you. Go see Miss Katie. Go see Miss Katie. Yes. Go on. Go on. Two hours. You are two hours late. We had an opportunity
to get “Hamilton” tickets. No. Those things have
been sold out forever. New story. When they heard it
was Liam’s dream– Liam’s dream? Liam’s dream. He loves “Hamilton.” No, he doesn’t– no. You know what? Can you just tell
me how much I owe so we can get out of your way? Oh, no, no, no. You have credit. No. No, I don’t have a credit. Do you think Liam
would like some stickers? I have plenty of
stickers for Liam No, no. We don’t– we don’t– we
don’t need any stickers. If you can just– If you can just check for me. And then I can pay you. And then [QUACK SOUND]
I’ll be gone. If you have credit upstairs,
you have credit in here. Believe me, you are
raising an angel– an angel, which
makes you a saint. I’m not a saint. No. I’m a mom. And I’m just doing what every
other mom is trying to do, and that’s raise good people. And you know what? I’m always making mistakes. And I’m just hoping that they
don’t need too much therapy when they get older. Do you know I gave my daughter
a candy bar for breakfast? And sometimes I put them to
bed in their school clothes just so I can get five
more minutes of sleep in the morning. And the last time
I took a shower was in the sink at the gym. So humble, like a saint. (IMPATIENT) Just give me–
just give me the stickers. Just give them to me. [SIGHS] Get Liam. [SIGHS] So what should we
wear to “Hamilton”? Should we shop? How did you get tickets to– I don’t want to know, do I? Nope. OK. Shopping it is. [BEEPING] All right. FRIEND: You know, you
are kind of a saint.
