In 1977, our next guest's brother went missing. Twenty years later, he showed back up in his hometown of Greenville, S.C., suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. Over the next fourteen years, his sister, Rebecca Schaper, attempted, and she and her family would even say, became obsessed, with trying to help Call Richmond to recover and return to society as a normal productive person. These extraordinary circumstances were filmed and turned into the documentary, "A Sister’s Call," which has won numerous awards around the country. We came across Rebecca at the Beaufort International Film Festival earlier this year.
