Test3 smallA homeless man, living on the fringes of society, feels out of touch with the speed and exclusivity of his surroundings. He retreats into his imagination to a time where he was better capable of fitting in and was accepted by others. When he is disrupted by a police officer, he initially sees him as a grave threat.
