A Movie Based on a Screen Writer's Class Exercise?
This Slice of Life film seems to have been pieced together from the submissions of a 28-student class of fledgling Screen Writers. Each scene has the same framework, which identifies the requirements of the screen writing teacher.

However, the way the scenes are pieced together make the 82 Minute length seem like the film is dragging in some scenes.
