Cassius, a worn-down Hispanic gladiator of modern life, struggles to make a living as a nighttime garbage collector in the concrete jungle of the Bronx. One night he’s laid off and forced to confront his fear of becoming a homeless pariah. On his own terms, he sets up his final farewell, but an unexpectedly malfunctioning fuse leads him to instead wander through the night on a quest for his truth.
