Emmy®-winning filmmakers Jon Alpert and Matthew O'Neill followed several men and women over the course of a year, from the five boroughs of NYC, as they scrape together a living - five cents at a time, providing a poignant glimpse into the daily lives and struggles of those who scavenge the city's garbage cans and recycling bins since the economic downturn. This documentary highlights the sense of community among the canners, many of whom have spent a decade working beside each other on the sidewalks, shunned by most New Yorkers and underserved by social services. Despite the numbing work and long hours, the canners maintain their pride, and we witness how one man's trash is truly another's treasure.
