SYNOPSIS :

Young male prostitute Jeremiah waits under a bridge for potential customers. Across the way, seventeen-year-old Celeste is in the middle of a crosswalk when her scarf tangles in her wheelchair. She blocks traffic, and Jeremiah, on his way to a job, stops to help. That moment sparks an infatuation in Celeste, but Jeremiah is too focused on his business. Then she returns as a customer and asks him to be her first love.
