At 30, and homeless for years in Key West, Florida, Morris Scott's life is transformed by a series of surreal, nocturnal happenings in the Key West Cemetery. But don't refer to him, or any other street people, as homeless. He can't stand that word.
Streets is gritty and character-driven. The narrative addresses homelessness—a chronic, contemporary issue—with a unique twist. There is robust camaraderie amongst the cast of colorful cohorts in the panhandling, street-business game. They are all just looking for a second chance some kind of avenue off the avenue.
But it is Morris' inspiring and motivating experiences, coupled with the unfulfilled yearning for his ideal girl, which begin to affect his behavior and drive him to uncharacteristic acts of heroism.
