This video portrays the homeless of Montreal. Interviews held on public benches reveal some of the events in their lives that have led them to the street. They talk about their alcoholism and relation to work. Some discuss their begging, their failed relationships and the children they have abandoned. Their words are accompanied by street scenes where we see them begging, fighting and buying alcohol. The attention given to each individual provides a window into the situation of homeless people and their humanity.
