This is more like an idea for a film than a film. A "roundabout" is what we in America call a traffic circle. A man is frustrated with life, has conflicts at work, gets into traffic, is late for a meeting, hits and kills a dog, gets blood on his clothes, and winds up going around and around the roundabout until the car runs out of gas. By that time, the police and his wife are there to rescue him from his stupor and his car.
The short film looks like a million Aussie bucks. The New South Wales Government is apparently willing to finance the directorial ambitions of one of its princesses. But the movie seems like an exercise in film-making, rather than a real film. Rachel Griffith's earlier film, Tulip, packs an emotional wallop. This one is just annoying.
