|Orca: A True Story|
"[T]he story is about a real person and her experiences.
One of which, is the experience of being homeless..."
"Orca: A True Story" allows the audience to share the true life experience of one woman's journey as she extricates herself from the odyssey of being a homeless street beggar on the streets of New York City during the six years since Occupy Wall Street and returns to "a normal life" as an employable member of society with a job, a home ... and a husband.
"ORCA" is different than other films about the homeless because the story is about a real person and her experiences. One of which, is the experience of being homeless. The central character accomplishes her goal and lifts herself from sleeping on sidewalks and in doorways solely by way of the money received from passersby who respond to her cardboard sign that reads "Need $ for FOOD!" as she sits silently.
As she nears the goal, she decides that she would like to get married. During Summer 2017, she decides to interact with the passersby that are kind to her as though they are speed dating. The relationships built during these interactions and her perception of these relationships are the heart of the film.
