ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconThere's not much to the story outside the abundant symbolism and underlying themes. The author tries to reconnect with his ex, then has a one-night stand, and then returns home. That's about it, and while I can't say I was ever bored, I did have a ''is that all there is?'' reaction at the end, along with a ''I'm still thinking about it'' statement when asked if I liked it or not.
