This is the true story of how Terry Celano overcame fears that lingered for over 30 years, stemming from an unfortunate experience involving a homeless person. As a result, he went on a quest to find and interview people that are living day by day with no place to go, most of which have to panhandle for their very survival. Their stories are compelling and sometimes shocking.
