Watermelon Man

What are the odds against a white man turning black overnight? After Jeff Gerber went to the bathroom, he was full of fright. At that image in the mirror, he could not help but stare. Where he should have been, there was a black man standing there. Jeff told his wife that he was having a nightmare. He, his spouse, and his children, all became afraid. Due to the circumstances, some adjustments had to be made. The situation became a unique one for Jeff and his family. This strange quirk of fate placed the insurance man in a quandary. Do you want to see how things turned out? Watch the movie. Based on the 1970 film “Watermelon Man” June 19, 2013
