PLOT SUMMARY: A scrounging vagabond is treated as an inhuman homeless man by society, as he assembles materials (trash, roadkill, etc.) for a shrine which has possessed him. After being scorned around town he returns to his “home”, an abandoned mill which houses the shrine known to him as “The Masterpiece” to which he confides his own views towards society. He goes out the next day to get the materials necessary for the completion of “The Masterpiece” but upon finding the so-called “final piece” he is chased back to the mill and shot down by a police officer (Officer Carnegie) who thinks he’s stealing and trespassing.
