I caught this film in 2003 at Nacogdoches Film Festival.
The film is very sparse on dialog and very heavy on imagery. Of all the short films shown at the NFF this one stuck with me. If you get a chance to watch it I highly recommend it.
IMDb now requires a minimum line count for comments so I'll talk briefly about the effectiveness of this film as a short. The details are kept to an absolute minimum, but are heavy in nature. The main character is sympathetic. The idea is simple, but has impact. Many short films have a tendency to be either a compressed feature or a trailer for a feature. This is a great example of a film that transcends.
