Because of Sam


Tampa native, Sam Piazza was born with Down syndrome. The love and support of his family, church and an inclusive school culture, as well as Sam’s courage, have helped him accomplish extraordinary things. The movie epitomizes what occurs when love prevails and courage rules.

Sam's positive outlook amid bullying and his desire to achieve more than was expected of him, make Sam an inspiration for people with disabilities, and, ALL people.

Because of Sam, a new documentary by Tampa native and University of South Florida Alumna Renee Warmack, takes you along an up-close journey with Sam Piazza and his family, from his birth, to winning Homecoming King at Gaither High School, to his rock star status as a team member at PDQ. The movie shows the world that being different can be difficult, but it also depicts how the conflicts and triumphs that occur in the life of a person with disabilities can serve as catalysts for positive change in the lives of those who cross his path.

You'll hear firsthand from family, friends and community members how, because of Sam, their lives have been made better. The movie will change the belief systems of the viewers from that of doubting the capability of people with disabilities, to believing that they can achieve great things. Furthermore, the viewers will reflect on their own lives and be inspired to tap into their potential to pursue their goals.

Tickets are $12.50 general admission / $9.50 Tampa Theatre Members.

A portion of the event proceeds will benefit the Piazza Family. For more information about the film and sponsorship packages go to: BecauseofSamTheMovie.com.
