Short animation in somber colours pictures the loneliness of an elderly man who cannot get in contact with the fast, rushing world around him.
For some people, life goes too quick. They live in another rhythm and cannot keep up with the tempo of the masses around them. Teddy is such a person, an elderly man who moves through life in a different rhythm than the people around him. He sits on a bench, while the traffic races past. For a brief moment, it seems that he manages to make contact with a girl, his life brightens, but the girl's mother snarls at Teddy. The world fades into sombre evening light again.
