Blind Willie

Description

It is the tale of a man named Bill Teale who pretends to be a businessman. He has an office with three heavy locks on the door. He crawls through a trapdoor in the ceiling and enters another office, in which he dons a disguise, changing himself into who the people on this floor know as Willie Teal. After a brief foray into hotel bathrooms around New York, he becomes Blind Willie, a homeless vet who stands by a street corner and begs money.
