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.

, the founder of the Raindance Film Festival.
