    Tom, Sandra, Randy, and Curt have all staked a month’s salary on a bet to see who can stay indoors the longest. It helps that they live and work in a downtown area where virtually all of the buildings are connected by a maze of glassed-in bridges. Why, with all the office towers, shopping malls, and apartment buildings joined, they could stay inside until they retire! That is, if it wasn’t driving them all slightly crazy. Come lunchtime, things start getting really strange, but, by the time it’s over, everyone’s looking at life a little differently.

    That's good to hear.
    I believe the Canadian DVD is only fullscreen - not surprising with Alliance at the helm.

    I enjoyed this film. A solid little independent film with some originality.
    Always good to see Don McKellar in films.

    Groovy; this is a very entertaining movie. Now, if only the director's next film would get a US release (I missed it at last years Independent Film Festival of Boston)...
