Each character is independent and unrelated to the others, or so he thinks.When he stumbles upon a life he actually wants – one that is good and meaningful – he discovers that life is not pretend.
Some of the people in his lives are very real and extremely dangerous.For instance, the Brotherhood of Panhandlers, an anarchist group of homeless men that Charlie is a member of. Led by a madman, the Brotherhood is willing to destroy Charlie and everyone close to him to carry out their plans.
