This Oscar-nominated German-language short from director Reto Caffi concerns a lonely and socially isolated department store security guard who grows infatuated with a clerk in his store's bookshop, but finds himself vying with a rival for her attentions. When he sees the other fellow getting beaten senseless on the subway, he does nothing to intervene - and then finds himself racked with guilt for it.
