Storyline

This feature length film (shot on black-and-white super-16mm) tells the story of a 74-year-old ex-professor who, after many years of living away from Philadelphia, the city where he came of age, returns to visit his hermit brother who has perfected his freakish steel-trap memory. As a result, however, his apartment has become an unlivable and unsanitary place. He goes out to find some cleaning supplies, only to find himself lost in a city he no longer knows. By shear happenstance, he bumps into an old friend, a world-class cut-up, who takes him to a place of importance to their past. Schweitzer, there, realizes he must reconcile with the brother he has not spoken to and has refused to understand for most of his life. Written by thustlebird
