Coming home on the train the morning after graduation, Jim Swanson meets Mary - the girl he liked from university. He invites her back to his place where they are shocked to find somebody already in the house. The intruder runs off and Jim pursues him in his dad's car. He finds him and runs him over - only then does he discover that the intruder is Jeff, his slacker best friend from university. Throughout the rest of the morning they wait for a taxi to take Jeff to the hospital and on the way they talk about university, girls and movies until they finally get to the root of the problems that have plagued their friendship for years.

Did You Know?
The original idea was to shoot the whole film in one continuous take (hence the film's title). Since the camera goes in and out of cars, the crew intended to achieve this by having a second cameraman hiding the back seat who the main cameraman could pass the camera to through the back window, which would be rolled down. This idea was abandoned for several reasons; firstly, the second cameraman backed out two days before shooting; and secondly, although the logistics of the crew traveling from place to place had all been worked out, it was decided that breaking the film into several shots would put less pressure on the cast and crew to get it right the first time, and it would also give them a few minutes to rest between shots.
