Jude and his friends are considered misfits by normal society; they live at the bottom of the economic and social scale and do so by choice. Although they are jobless, penniless and without much hope, they take on an impossible task. Before sunset tomorrow they must raise enough money to buy a birthday present for a sick little boy. This simple act of compassion becomes their quest. If they succeed, it will change their lives forever.
