The film begins with overtones of a marriage in trouble and a rather obvious attempt on the director's part to get the Book of Job on the viewer's mind. As strange as this may seem, it works.

Craig Nash goes to work and finds that he has been let go by his employer on the grounds of company cut backs. Craig is devastated, of course, and has to break this news to his already irritated spouse (we have no idea what has her irritated and Acker seems to want it that way). She does not take the news of his dismissal very well at all. What unfolds from this point is a very deliberate unraveling of his life. He is robbed and (without giving away too much) ends up stranded in the city after hours. This leaves him wandering in search of a phone or some other means of assistance, but instead of finding help he seems to encounter one bizarre episode after another. My personal favorite involves a car full of teenagers that finally leads to his getting home as the sun comes up.

After the "night"mare, you'd be hopeful that some mercy would be shown on this guy. Instead, Acker opts to show us all of the eye opening sub plots behind each of the weird characters from the night before. The "day" has Craig struggling to keep his temper in check and tests his patience perhaps even more than the previous night.

The ending is what will make or break this film for most. I definitely feel like it would lead to interesting conversation with those you might have seen it with. I suppose that's what most good films do. "Night and Day" raised more questions than it provided answers. I suppose that this was partially the intent. I don't know what else Ricky Acker may come up with in the future, but like this film or not, you will have to admit that it was not just a filmmaker going through the motions. There is some reason he wanted to tell this particular story and he's not about to give away his motives. I happen to appreciate that.
