Buskers

An Irish lad sings in the street and begs in the train station to support himself and his Da. In the more lucrative train station, he fights with an older Russian boy who speaks no English, and loses his spot. But after a while, they try working together, particularly when the U2-loving Irish lad discovers the other boy also has a musical talent.
