In the pre-dawn hours, a forlorn street cat, a lost pet dog with a reward out for his return, a vagrant sleeping on the pavement, and a prostitute standing at the roadside looking for a john are accompanied by the morning chants of a nearby Buddhist temple, together composing a “Song of the Wanderers.” Among them are a disabled person rejected by his family, an elderly woman abandoned by her children, and homeless people with nowhere to go and nothing to do. People pass by without seeing them, police cite and release them over and over, politicians make hay out of issues, and poor people keep exploiting other poor people by playing the lottery. Surveillance cameras are everywhere on the streets, coldly recording everything, devoid of emotion.
