Each of the vignettes are loosely involved with the others and cover a broad range of subjects including; two drunks returning home after a long boozy night; a man with murder on his mind, an English speaking couple making up; a fallen film star demonstrating a kiss; a ballet dancer's painful realization that she cannot dance.
