Sammy Gregory is a 'special needs' infant - special in that he resembles a giant insect, and needs a constant supply of raw meat. His parents (Lara Fisher and Jared Martzell) are understandably at the end of their rope. They invite a social worker (Mink Stole) over to see if their baby can possibly be adopted to a more capable family. But when the social worker reveals herself to be more interested in punishing Sammy's parents than in helping anyone, little Sammy proves that he might be a valued member of the family after all.
