A solitary man stares at himself in a bathroom mirror. In the kitchen, he fixes himself a t-bone steak. While he's eating, a drop of blood falls from his nose onto the plate. He puts a wad of paper in that nostril. Later, the nosebleed reappears while he's bathing; in his sleep, it becomes more severe. Now he's feeling panic. His world is out of joint. Can he calm himself down and regain control?
