Good Sam | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Kate Bradley is a young reporter working on tragic stories, known as the "bummer beat." She lives in New York City. One day, she covers a big fire happening at an abandoned warehouse, and a firefighter rescues her from danger. She runs the story, but her boss reprimands her for putting her life on the line. Kate goes to an event where her father is speaking. He is a politician and from their phone conversation beforehand, it is discovered that Kate has little interest or faith in politics. There, she meets Jack Hansen, a hedge fund manager who asks her out. She turns him down. Kate goes to a staff meeting the next day, and her boss gives her a different kind of story to work on: a woman named Christina found $100,000 in cash in a bag with a sideways eight on it on her front doorstep. She believes a Good Samaritan gave it to her. It had no note attached or anything else there except for the bag of money. Kate goes to interview the woman, and along the way we find out that Kate is cynical and believes the person had an ulterior motive. Christina, however, is an optimist who sees the good in others. Bags of money begin to appear all over New York City, all on a doorstep of someone in need or someone who wants to help out a good cause, most without a note or anything else on them. In the meantime, Kate discovers security camera footage of the man behind the money. She tracks the man who she thinks to be him down and finds out that he is actually Eric, the firefighter that saved her life at the big fire, but he claims he is not Good Sam, the nickname Kate and her boss have given the Good Samaritan. An intern interrupts a meeting one day, telling Kate that a man wants to meet with her, as he claims to be Good Sam. She calls his bluff, however, and he leaves. Kate's boss begins to wonder if the story is worth chasing after all.
