Mel Cobb leads a lonely existence in an apartment filled with clutter, his only contact with the outside world being as a weekend tele-marketer for a start-up newspaper which features stories on city road, bridge and tunnel construction workers in order to alleviate road rage among motorists who are stuck in traffic. One morning, Cobb listens to a radio news report indicating that left-handed people die younger than right-handers, and so makes the decision to convert to left-handedness as a means of shortening his life span. His attempt at becoming a lefty leads to an interesting turn of events which suggest that he may be at the start of a never-ending cycle. Written by W.B.

|Trivia||In an early draft of the script, writer-director Rae McGrath specified the frequency of the radio station Mel Cobb listens to as "1610 AM"; however, after William Brown, who played Cobb, researched and advised McGrath of a 1997 decision by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) expanding the uppermost limit of the AM radio frequency to 1700 kHz from its prior cutoff of 1600 kHz, the fictitious station's frequency was changed (at Brown's behest) to "1720 AM."
