Charlie's antique car-collecting habit has become a problem. The neighbors are angry and his wife is sick of it. But Charlie is also an anonymous crusader in the fight to save the soul of his city. How does a society discern between a hoarder and a preservationist? With Charlie, it all depends whether you live next door.
