Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Withdrawn New York storage clerk Martin (Robert Margolis) is employed at a used-camera shop and fascinated with the lives of his neighbors, but he fails to see how he's being manipulated into a scam by computer-designer Laura (Lee Ann Thomas). Swiss-born director Frank Matter, who relocated to the U.S. in 1993, made this noirish low-budgeter for $50,000. Shown at 1997 film festivals (Locarno, Bergamo).
