THE SINGER AND THE POET

 

 

Based on a true story, a young woman decides to take a homeless man out to dinner on her last dime.  Alex, a struggling young singer, is barely scraping by.  An independent spirit, she is searching for what she wants and who she is.

 

Calvin is a homeless man who is in a state of desperate hunger when Alex encounters him.  Her decision to take him to a restaurant turns into an experience they both would not easily forget.
