Fred is a lonely 54-year-old man. He rides around in the local bus, virtuously attending church and eating his green beans, meat and potatoes at 6 o’clock on the dot every day. One day, the tramp Leo wanders into his life. After an initial moment of suspicion, Fred takes Leo in. Like a strict father, he tries to educate his new housemate. He soon finds out that Leo has a special talent, as a result of which Fred again slowly starts to set out into the wide world.
