Amongst the hustle and bustle of New York wanders George, an alcoholic homeless man completely disconnected from the society that noisily lives on around him. Rootless, the camera quietly observes him moving around the city looking for places to rest, overhearing other people’s conversations and watching his estranged daughter from afar. Walking into a centre for homeless men one night, he befriends a jazz musician who helps him begin to understand how, since the death of his wife, he has come to be in this situation. Witnessing George’s nomadic survival from day to day, the film is a moving depiction of what it means to be homeless in a busy, modern city and how lonely and alienating this can be for those experiencing it.
