**Redemption: The people known as canners who barely survive on the streets of NYC during these economic hard times, recycling discarded bottles and cans for a nickel each, are the subject of this solemn documentary. A grim vision of 'post-industrial gleaners struggling at the edge of scoiety.'

And whether or not this filmmaker's quest has perhaps unleashed his inner stalker. At least according to Ferlinghetti.
