Doonby tells the story of Sam Doonby (John Schneider), a mysterious drifter who quickly becomes the talk of the small Texas town. He finds work at Leroy's Country Blues Bar, where his musical talents make him a local celebrity, attracting the attention of the beautiful but spoiled Laura Reaper. Sam is strangely immune to the misfortunes of others, yet always around to prevent sudden disasters from happening. It's not long before the narrow minded townsfolk become jealous and start to question his background and motives. But, it is Laura's doubts that that cause Sam to vanish, leaving the locals to deal with some difficult admissions. Sam's abrupt disappearance forces those he left behind to deal with some painful revelations and to question his mysterious arrival and departure.
