After turning sixty, a languid looking man takes the plunge: he takes off. The goodbye note to the wife has been written, his bags are packed. He plans to bid farewell to his wife and their indolent life in a quiet suburb. But right when he drinks a last glass of water in the kitchen, his unsuspecting wife comes in. Suddenly, his intended flight turns out to be more complicated than envisioned. In a few minutes and with a minimal use of dialogue, this drama clearly depicts a man’s inner struggle.
