Coleman is a 10-year-old shoeshine boy who lives out of a locker at a train station, which he never leaves for fear of the outside. Everyone is extremely fond of the boy, and various people who work at the station care for his needs, but the most prominent person in his life is bag lady
Stapleton, who gives him motherly advice. Fondness for Coleman grows when it is discovered that he can predict winners at the racetrack. Other than a few cute lines and situations, there's little else of value in this absurd and extremely naive picture.
