Embracing their independence, outside the confines of the limitations their families and society places on them, is vital for anyone with disabilities. The courageous protagonists in the new film, ‘Come As You Are,’ are doing just that, with the help of a traveling nurse, who’s played by Gabourey Sidibe.

The characters’ emotional, and physical, journey is showcased in an exclusive new clip that ShockYa’s debuting for the comedy-drama. In the clip, Sidibe’s character, Sama, who works as a nurse for people with special needs, finds three of her patients at an automotive repair shop. She demands that they explain to her why her van was driven into a ditch on the side of a highway.

‘Come As You Are’ was directed by Richard Wong, and written by Erik Linthorst. In addition to the Academy Award-nominated Sidibe, the movie also stars Grant Rosenmeyer, Ravi Patel and Hayden Szeto as the three young men who embark on the journey, as well as Delaney Feener, Asta Philpot, C.S. Lee and Janeane Garofalo.

The feature had its world premiere at last year’s SXSW. ‘Come As You Are’ is now playing in theaters and on VOD, courtesy of Samuel Goldwyn Films.

Samuel Goldwyn Films has released the following synopsis for ‘Come As You Are,’ which is a remake of the award winning, critically acclaimed 2011 Belgian film, ‘Hasta la Vista’:

Three young men with disabilities (Rosenmeyer, Szeto and Patel) flee their overbearing parents on a road trip to a brothel in Montreal catering to people with special needs.
