This independent film is about four homeless people in Brooklyn, and how they manage to get by from day to day. At the beginning, it depicts the lives of Sammy, his heroin-addicted girlfriend and his crack-addict brother. Sammy's brother and girlfriend raise money by selling their bodies for sex. Sammy seems to get by through foraging and fishing. They live together in an unused, semi-abandoned warehouse through an arrangement made with its caretaker/watchman. Their lives gain dramatic poignancy when they are joined by a young runaway boy named Shiner.
