Sometimes your story is literally all you have.
Greta is a clinical psychologist who has not quite adjusted to
the isolation of homelessness. Navigating the gloomy streets
of Baltimore, she and her companion Olga, a stuffed penguin
who can talk, learn that telling your story is not so easy
when you are on the streets. Challenging assumptions and
telling the truth becomes the task of these two.

A young man stuck in the daily grind enters a ten day meditation retreat only to question his reality as his past and future close in on him.
