On the edge of New York’s Wall Street, a young artist tries to make a living with portrait drawings of passersby. One night he finds a little girl on a corner of a side street girl whose father has just been murdered. While he looks after her and searches for her mother, he experiences a tragicomic odyssey with many funny and sad encounters on the streets of the metropolis. In this film, Charles Lane uses almost no dialogue and shows once again the clarity with which silent films can tell stories.
