About the project:

BARRY SUMMERS, a disconnected middle-aged man, frantically searching the trash cans of a downtown L.A. park day after day, at the same place and same time, is drawn out of his world of perpetual lost and not-found by a group of mysterious street people who help him find what he is truly missing.
