The episode with the participation of young David touched the problems of homeless and other unfortunate groups of the population and besides that unmasked scandalous things and abuses in the service of social support. The problem is developing by the example of David's character, who is in himself picturesque enough - a boy named Barry West unemployed and homeless, broken, but proud, embittered, but sensitively apprehending even a little support, lonely and left to the mercy of fate.
Fractured ribs - a result of a righteous scuffle with his brother, are nothing compared with what is to come to the boy, who is ready at any case to fight, defending his dignity and very scanty property.
A kind lady-doctor, in the charge of which is a gloomy roughneck, of course cannot allow him to spend nights in the street and every day find new incidents. That's why she places him into a social shelter. It soon turns out that Barry was perhaps more safe spending nights in the street.
