The lack of acceptance and respect affects different people in very profound ways. Some chose to create an alternate world into which escape seems preferable to reality. Others choose reality then dwell on the negatives in life. Stacey Poivis can not decide which choice allows her to get through her day. Her existence is a blend of reality and imagination. The results are bizarre, amusing, and sometimes tragic. Staceys dream of becoming a law enforcement agent seems so unattainable, because her reality as a city street cleaner is so insignificant. Sadly the lack of respect and acceptance shown her by others is as much at fault for her quirky existence as Stacey herself.
