This is a perfect short film. A very simple idea done with skillful filmmaking, a wonderful cast and nuanced directing it is magical and full of surprises. Let’s hope it is put in for Academy consideration. ...Stands out as one of the Sundance star films ... and succeeds at doing all of the things a short film should accomplish.

A bizarre yet captivating short about the little quirks that make us tick. Beautifully shot by Todd Banhazl, the visual style of the film really sets the tone from the start.
