An old man and his playful dog live together in a garbage dump, where they spend their days sorting through the trash left behind by others. The objects–-a broken guitar, a torn baseball glove, a deflated soccer ball––are the remnants of people’s abandoned dreams. Determined to bring these dreams back to life, the man tinkers away, carefully mending each piece of “garbage” until he can re-gift it to someone who will cherish it.
