Synopsis: 
NORA, 35, wealthy and well-dressed, walks down the street, window shopping in her high-end neighborhood. A homeless person approaches her, asking for money, and begins a strange conversation between the two. At the end of their conversation, Nora feels a sense of elation she hasn’t felt in a very long time. She proceeds to hug him and give him a very large amount of money. She feels so good after that, that it makes her forget all her personal problems. She shares her feelings with her friends, who immediately understand what she is talking about and want to feel the same way. Finding it difficult to locate enough homeless people to satiate their need to give, they design an app where anyone can enter the location of any homeless people they encounter, and, like GPS, it can give you information about the homeless people nearest you. It’s an instant hit! Six years later, Nora, recently divorced, meets the homeless person again, to find that both their situations are drastically different from their first meeting.
