Shorts in Competition: Narrative

World Premiere

USA | 16 MINUTES | English |


A man, struggling with inner turmoil, begins his daily commute waiting for a bus that is rated one of the city's worst. In an attempt to befriend a fellow commuter, who is at times quite cryptic, his patience and sanity are tested. Bearing witness to the beginnings of this uneasy friendship, a woman sits quietly at the bus stop content with her book, discreetly eavesdropping.
