A few months back we talked to director Dan Napoli and producer Bill Hipsher about their experience making the film.Now that "50 Summers" is available to stream on Amazon Prime, it's a good time to circle back with some of the stars of the film, and that means talking to former Assistant GM of the Omaha Storm Chasers, Rob Crain.
