A stand-up comedian commits suicide, and six tales unfold within 72 hours with mildly connecting vignettes. Each story is an encounter between two strangers who bounce into each other in today’s world and find themselves in a situation of turmoil and crisis. An old man wants a young guy to trust his story. A budding artist tries to stay connected to an attractive young girl. Two middle-aged mothers seek a solution for their unruly children. A corporate deal ends up unsettling for two women. A sensitive man desperately seeks shelter for a homeless woman. An imposter encounters the scary visit of his victim. All these men and women go through a journey alternating between despair and hope through a curious interplay of distrust, intrigue, violence, and loss of moral and creative vision.
