The film is earthy without being vulgar, though script at times veers too far into the preachy and meller realm.

Plot takes Beverly Garland, a slumming literary type, to downtown LA to absorb atmosphere for a book. She stumbles onto Nielsen, who hardly ever speaks but lives in a junked trailer full of promising manuscripts. With help from literary critic Joe Maross, she tries to promote Nielsen as a new find.
