Worlds collide when Stephanie (Michelle Harrison) takes a wrong turn and runs down Mike (Kirk Caouette), a homeless street busker, in Gastown. As Mike gets to his feet, Stephanie panics and peels away, leaving the scene and her conscience behind her. The next day while walking to work she is shocked to see Mike playing guitar and busking in front of her office building. Stephanie soon realizes that Mike has been playing there everyday and she has never once taken the time to look down and acknowledge him. For the first time ever she is forced to stop and listen and in his music makes a beautiful discovery – a discovery and a friendship that will forever change both of their lives.
