When Larry Met Larry 0:12:53 A heartwarming and poignant story about when and how Larry King and his son, Larry King Jr. met for the first time -- and it wasn't in the hospital when Jr. was born. What most people probably don’t know is that father and son didn't meet until Larry King Jr. was in his early 30s, and King was in his early 60s. King's childhood friend, Herb Cohen, helped arrange the meeting, and the film explores what it was like for a father and a son to establish a relationship after having had no contact for over 30 years. Herbie and Larry Jr. reminisce about their own meeting, about King's life, and their individual relationships with him, coming to terms with the imperfections and success of the internationally known celebrity talk show host who was both a father and a best friend.

Helfer and Speed 0:16:01 An intimate vignette exploring the relationship between a 92 year old man and his 66 year old step-son, who is also the filmmaker. The film includes the younger man interviewing his step-father about the older man’s thoughts on what should be said at the inevitable memorial service to be held upon the elder's passing. The heart of the film, made four years later, is a Cinéma Vérité view of the elder’s life in Florida and some of the time the two men spend together. The poignant and humorous narration that drives the main part of the film is an alternating mix of conversations from their time together and voice messages exchanged when they are apart. The film ends with the elder delivering his last thoughts and wishes, ideas he had been working to define earlier in the film.
