Abstract:

A nameless busker, singing his heart out on the streets of Dublin meets a nameless young woman who speaks English with an accent, a street vendor. His girlfriend has left him, so he works in his father's vacuum repair shop and writes songs for her. She cleans houses, and plays the demo piano in a shop at lunchtime. The singer comes to hear her, and is so impressed that he immediately asks if she wants to collaborate -- right then -- on one of his tunes. They slowly piece the song together, and magic begins. This is a love story about a creative partnership, and the deeper longing for communication that underlies any worthwhile artistic effort.
