An inspirational story, with an unusual twist, when an alien visitor is sent to Earth to study our culture and he ends up contacting and using a seventy-one year old homeless man through whom he conducts a test of humanity.
John Ross was living the American dream until one day when everything went wrong and he ended up on the streets, homeless and penniless for thirty years. Until one day, he meets someone who takes an interest in him and a strange bond is formed. The alien, sent to study Earth, decides to use Ross to conduct a test of humanity, and concocts a plan to launch him on a mission to salvage an entire portion of his city from its deplorable condition. In the mix, thirty years of his life, which was lost, now come back to face him and John Ross discovers that time had not taken away his dreams. A passionate story which reveals to us that dreams never die and that everyone deserves a second chance.
