Description:
  Two homeless men have a quixotic day of comedy, adventure, and romance and upon the streets of Los Angeles thanks to a “Jackson,” a twenty dollar bill, and the beautiful musical backdrop of opera’s greatest arias.

“This is going to be the best day of your life!” Donald (Barry Primus) promises Sam (Charlie Robinson). They are two homeless men living on Los Angeles’ Skid Row. The source of Donald’s optimism is a skillfully bummed $20 bill (a Jackson). But with it Donald, a modern day Don Quixote, promises they can go anywhere and do anything. JACKSON, directed by J.F. Lawton, spans a single day that turns into a cold, rainy night. In the most unusual aspect of the film other down-and-out characters express themselves by singing famous opera arias. From an old drunk singing a Donizetti duet with a crack addict, to a bag-lady singing Carmen, what begins as a tale of friendship becomes a story about the beauty and resilience of the human spirit.
