Sitting alone on a train, a man travels home. While walking along a lonely road it begins to rain. He rummage's through some garbage on the side of the road for some protection. He finds some plastic sheeting, but it has a hole in it. Upon further hunting he uncovers a weird pattern on the wall, with the number '117' written in the middle. Then all sorts of bizarre things happen.

If you like films that are set in lonely cities, that are forever rainy and depressing, with a good amount of paranoia and weird happenings, this is for you.

I found this short film quite intriguing. The acting was convincing and the photography was really nice. The locations are very drab and unsettling. The rain in-front of the bridge was very beautiful, and is probably my favorite thing about the movie. In some ways this film reminded me of 'Se7en' (for it's sets) and some early scenes from 'The Matrix'.

One criticism, I found some of the writing to be cliched. But it isn't a major downer.
