Wikipedia says a walk-in is, "a new age concept of a person whose original soul has departed his or her body and has been replaced with a new soul, either temporarily or permanently." Some people believe that the concept is ageless. One of them is metaphysical author Scott Blum who wrote and directed the feature film Walk-In.
His independent dark comedy is about an ailing engineer named Don Newport who meets an angel named Robert while facing his impending death. Robert ultimately inhabits Don's previous body while each of them grapples with their new-found incarnations.
Noted Door County Psychic Advisor Diana Blagdon, will host a screening discussion on the Scott Blum's book, film and the phenomenon of Walk-Ins (following the screening).

Joe is a children's book writer and illustrator in L.A. in the second year of major writer's block. His girlfriend is impatient with his lack of progress, so he breaks off the relationship and agrees to accompany her brother to a small town in Wisconsin where stalwarts jump in Lake Michigan on Christmas morning. The house where they stay is isolated, and when Joe's pal is hospitalized with a badger bite, Joe is on his own. He befriends a local hermit, is attracted to the man's granddaughter, and must deal with the local sheriff's dislike of anyone from out of town. Christmas approaches and things get complicated.
