A thematically-diverse collection of narrative and documentary films.

ABOUT THE FILM: Cassius, a Mexican-American garbage man who is a modern version of a worn-down gladiator, fights to make a living as a nighttime garbage man in the concrete arena known as the Bronx. Inevitably, he gets laid off one night and faces his fear of becoming homeless and a pariah. On his own terms, Cassius sets up his final farewell, but an electrical fuse unexpectedly defaults him and leaves him wandering throughout the night in quest of his truth.
