What's I Need That Like?

Sam doesn’t get out of the house very much. Actually, he doesn’t get out at all, opting instead for the safety of his house in the company of his possessions – his many, many possessions, that he says brings him happiness.

When a notice from the government arrives alerting Sam that he must clean up his property or face eviction, he’s forced to reckon with what’s trash, what’s treasure, and whether we can ever know the difference between the two. He may be throwing out more than his possessions.

Is I Need That Good for Kids?

Although there is not a lot of adult content in the show, it is decidedly aimed towards mature audiences.
