They met by chance. One was an upper-class schoolboy, the other an 80-year-old street bum living on Division Street, one of the toughest areas of downtown Philadelphia. But their extraordinary friendship goes far beyond their ages and lifestyles. The eccentric Cleveland Meriwether not only shows 14-year-old Trevor Atwood how to enjoy life to the full, but also opens the rich boy's eyes to the terrible plight of America's less fortunate and makes Trevor determined to fight all the odds to help those in need. But the dangers of Division Street and a tragic secret from Meriwether's past threaten the human bond forged between the old man and the young boy - a situation that will change both their lives forever.
