A gentle tale about a family coming to appreciate the value of those who are different (gypsies,/Romany, homeless people) and a man who comes to realize he is part of a bigger community.

Armand walked briskly.He raised his head so that the points of his beard were trust forward.He straightened his shoulders in the mended coat ,he wasn't a hobo anymore he was a working man of Paris.
