Each and every day, the homeless Joel Gray wanders the Ithaca commons and collects two dollars and thirty eight cents – the cost of a small vanilla latte at Juna's coffee shop. Each and every day, a woman waits inside to greet his familiar face with the warmth of the open arms the rest of the world can't seem to offer him. But when this fragile stranger finally reaches out to Sally, can she turn her back on the life she knows to pull him out from within himself? How much will two strangers give for a coffee break worth two dollars and a moment of clarity in life?
