Based on a true strory, People Like Us show us a family secret that can change the life of Sam (Chris Pine) and Frankie(Elizabeth Banks) forever. Pine is a salesman that saw his world turned upside down when his father dies. He learns to being responsible, discovering that he has a sister, a single mother. The story focuses on these pillars and shows us the development of Chris Pine character throughout the film.

In the end, the argument of the film manages to surprise us in a very pleasing way.
