The main character is a 20-year-old who works in his grandmother's coin laundry, ostensibly to keep people from stealing clothes but probably really to give him something to do. We learn that he wears a knit cap to cover the scar of a childhood wound that rendered him mentally very slow. He meets a beautiful young woman who has problems of her own.

The film actually covers a fair amount of ground beyond what I have described, including some unexpected twists, but it does so at a very deliberate pace that might be a problem for some people. The acting seems quite good, especially by the two leads, and the story is, in a word, sweet. Seen at Cinequest (the San Jose, CA film festival) on 2/25/2002.
