Doomby is an independent film following the title character Sam Doonby (played by John Schneider), that articulates the value of a single person to a community. The film begins with Doonby, a wandering but talented drifter, exiting an interstate bus in a small Texan town. After getting work in Leroy’s Country/Blues Bar, Doonby gains some local fame as a blues musician and helps avert some town catastrophes when he seems to always be in the right place at the right time. He becomes popular, especially with a beautiful but spoiled resident named Laura (played by Jenn Gotzon), daughter of the successful town doctor Cyrus Reaper (played by Joe Estevez). Despite his popularity, Doomby is increasingly met with suspicion and rejection due to his enigmatic origins and the jealousy his local stardom created. The townsfolk, suspicious of Sam Doonby's past turn hostile, and even Laura begins to question who he is. Only after Doonby disappears as suddenly as he came does the town begin to realize what they lost.
