A teeny tiny man lives in an old suitcase on the sidewalk, where he gathers the precious things thrown away by passers-by. But the people on the street are too busy to notice him, so his home is always being knocked about. When he takes matters into his own hands, he makes a surprise connection with an elderly blind man, and this camaraderie makes his whole life better. ‘The Pocket Man’ is an eloquent tale about compassion and hope.
