Storyline

Dean, the supervisor at a small data-processing company, arrives at work on the day he's promised Eric, a younger colleague, that he'll stop smoking. They go outside to smoke, and Dean says it's his last. Eric bets him $100 that he won't last the night. Later that day, Dean has to lay off an older temp worker, Rita. That night, Dean can't sleep: he paces, he tears up cigarettes, he goes to a bar to see his friend Theresa. He's unbearable, so she leaves. Later that night, Dean succumbs to his addiction, but the next day, after he has paid off Eric, he goes outside for a smoke, and it just may save his life. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A non-authoritarian lesson for all, but especially young folks.
17 June 2003 | by bigdave-176See all my reviews

This film was a very good anti-smoking piece. I would highly recommend it to any educational or consciousness group of all ages. Moreover, for young folks at the beginning of defiance, rebellion, authority challenges and general recalcitrancy that we all have faced, may glean the message, without it being just another "no" order that we all hated. We closed our minds to become independent "smart-asses"!! After smoking for 40 years, this film had a strong message for me and anyone addicted to "Lord Nic" !! To the middle school teacher, this film is a great tool !!
