VAGRANT tells the story of Frank (Luke Oparah), a homeless Black man subsisting on nightly alcohol binges to numb himself from the pain of guilt and regret he suffered from an earlier life.

After one such bender Frank wakes up to find a puppy that was left to die in a garbage bin. The puppy, alone and helpless, touches Frank in a way he never could have expected. As Frank takes the necessary steps in caring for the dog, he begins to unravel his past while facing an uncertain future.

Calgary filmmaker Caleb Ryan’s first self-funded feature captures an unsettling day to day reality for many, resulting in a raw, honest, and emotional viewing experience.
