Richard Turner is one of the world’s greatest card magicians. He also happens to be blind. In DEALT, we watch as Turner wows audiences at The Magic Castle in Hollywood and practices diligently throughout his daily life. He travels the world showing his card tricks, often with his supportive family by his side. Turner struggles with his dependency and wants to earn respect for this great skill without the recognition of his disability. His pursuit of perfection is endless. Director Luke Korem returns to DIFF with a documentary that shows how our weaknesses may actually be our greatest strengths.
