What do you do when you're stopped at an intersection and someone with a sign asks you for money? Do you give them some or do you stare straight ahead pretending they're not there? WHEN THE LIGHT'S RED is a poignant and humorous examination of the way in which privilege, power, fact and reality intersect inside our heads and outside our car window.

"Poignant and often hilarious take on one man's response to panhandlers.... using the technique of an interior monologue (dialogue, actually, since his inner voices argue incessantly with each other), Wilson reveals the conflicts so many feel as they pull up to a red light and see the man (or sometimes woman) with "the sign." The director has taken an intractable problem and given it a lot of humor while still looking at the serious side."
