Storyline

It's a cold winter night in Berlin when a young woman steps out of the shower and trembles after her package of cigarettes. Empty! Desperate she begins a hunt for cigarettes. But it doesn't start well. She locks herself out, it starts to rain, and when she finally find a cigarette machine the coin gets stuck in the machine. She goes from there, angry and shaking and partly unknowing of the strange chain of reaction, that she just started. Written by Fredrik Klasson <fredrik.klasson@telia.com>

An interesting coincidental short.
6 June 2000 | by (England) – See all my reviews

A woman leave her house to buy cigarettes, but accidently locks herself out. She goes to the cigarette machine, and her only coin gets stuck in there. She leaves the scene frustrated. Then a lady nearby hears the coin drop. She picks up the coin. Then the coincidental chain of events start to unfold, including a lottery draw that is disrupted, and an escaping lover who jumps into a police bust. It all eventually goes full circle.
