Tired of paying bills and belonging to the system, former Chicago accountant Eddie took to the streets 27 years ago. Now the icon of Silver Lake, the hipster capital of Los Angeles, "The 5 Dollar Guy" is fascinating in so many ways. Entertainer, model recycler, thief and defender of the LGBT cause, he shares with us the adventures of his daily life as an extraordinary homeless man. His story is the reflection of a contrasting and paradoxical America.
