A Friend Indeed: The Bill Sackter Story is a 2008 documentary feature. It is not rated and is 90 minutes long. Abandoned in an institution for 44 years, Bill Sackter would never see his family again. Forgotten and alone, Bill’s life changed through the help and friendship of a young college student, Barry Morrow, and several other caring individuals. With a harmonica, a warm cup of coffee, and an incredible embrace of life, witness the transformation of the real Bill Sackter, from a neglected individual into a National hero for people with disabilities.
