Kirk Caouette’s Hit ‘n Strum is almost a one man show. The former stunt actor left behind a life of setting himself on fire and jumping in front of cars for other people in order to do it for himself and the result is very positive.
Couette wrote, directed, composed and stars in the movie as Mike, a busker living on Vancouver’s notorious Downtown Eastside. Stephanie (Michelle Harrison), a young career woman, hit Mike and takes off just as he’s getting up and when she sees Mike again the following day playing outside her officer, she stops and listens. This marks the beginning of an unlikely friendship between Mike and Stephanie.
