OK, I didn't get it.

This is a inexplicable 25-minute dramatic, live-action short in which it's difficult to figure out exactly what of significance happened to the characters. A couple checks into a motel, and the following day the wife goes to visit her father, who is an invalid, to give a break to his hired caretaker. The husband stays at the motel and strikes up a friendship with another man who is staying there. The director cuts between these scenes somewhat arbitrarily. Most annoying is the fact that the loud rock-music soundtrack featuring Robin Trower and David Essex plays over the dialogue making it hard to make out some of it. (Not sure if that was intentional, or sloppy sound editing.) I enjoy avant-garde and experimental filmmaking, but this just seemed like a pointless exercise.
