Every morning Betty tramps alone through the city to join her fellow buskers in the pedestrian tunnel below, trying to earn a living. But her earnings are meagre and to make things worse, the new security guard, Joe, is trying to confiscate her fiddle. While Betty dreams of fame and fortune, Joe dreams of earplugs – something’s got to give.
Betty, a street musician, is playing violin in the tunnel as usual. She leads a simple but happy life dreaming of having her own recital someday. However, Joe, a policeman who thinks Betty’s music stinks, makes it tough for her to play on the street. Then a sexy bombshell of female musician appears on the scene, intimidating Betty and casting a shadow over her daily life. This film is in the style of a silent movie and anyone will appreciate the humor throughout it. This film, displaying the heart of an eternal optimist, will seduce you into leaving your mundane life behind and you’ll join a fantasy world that exists within you. (Amy LEE)
