The piece speaks of delusion and defeat. How he handles the struggle is what throws us off while reminding us that we all have our bag of problems. He faces challenges with sound and props, feelings and memories and engages the crowd, every step of the way. For instance, the performer asks spectators to hum his song so that he "can perform anyway". At every turn, something goes wrong, but the show must go on. All he needs is "a little adaptation". He also recounts anecdotes that are either humorous, nostalgic or sorrowful.
