The shadow of poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti is shown as he walks a dog while carrying a face mask in San Francisco. VO consists of him reading a poem. A bus passes in the city, then Sorrento Pizza, Big Al’s, Agenzia Viaggi, and City Lights Books are seen from outside. Ferlinghetti stands in front of signs that read “Born in Sin and Shapen in Iniquity”, “I am the Door”, and “Remember, If Ye Believe not...He Ye Shall...Sins”. He wears a straw hat as he stands in front of bookshelves. Ferlinghetti later reads a poem from a book in front of a brick wall next to empty crates.
