Turner is a card shark who parlayed his sleight of hand into a lucrative career, despite being blind since childhood. Lack of eyesight was never an obstacle ― if anything, it pushed him to achieve more. Turner wound up touring the country, performing for celebrities and appearing on television, never informing audiences that he couldn’t see.

HuffPost has the exclusive trailer for “Dealt,” which won a documentary prize at South by Southwest this year. Opening in select theaters Oct. 20, Luke Korem’s film showcases a man who didn’t need eyesight to lead a magical life.
