Plot

When Charlie Babbitt’s (played by Tom Cruise) father passed away, he left not only a car for his son, but information about the fact that he had a brother by the name of Raymond (played by Dustin Hoffman) in the movie Rain Man.

Raymond gets a good percentage of what was listed on his father’s will but because of his autism, Charlie thinks that it is unfair for Raymond to have so much and not being able to know what to do with it. At first he was enraged by all the money his brother was getting, but it took a trip to bring these boys closer and understand each other in the movie Rain Man.
