Ideally the director would like to film peoples reactions over three days as
the transformation of our homeless man takes place and see how their
reactions change towards him over the course of the three days.

The idea is a simple one; take a few homeless people off the streets and

housed, trained and ultimately, equipped to stand on their own feet again.
