Storyline

A disheveled man picks up litter on a street using a stick with a nail on its end. In a bar, a cigar-smoking swell reads the financial section of a newspaper. The vagabond enters, the upstanding man ignores a request for alms, the hobo exits. The gent can't find his wallet, so he orders espresso after espresso as he ponders what to do. The vagabond returns, a napping nun at the next table gives him money, and the gent considers pilfering her purse. As the evening drags on, the bill for espresso mounts. A detective tacks up a wanted poster. Among the waiter, detective, nun, vagabond, and gent-in-a-jam, can luck or kindness find their way into the bar? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

an ordinary embarrassing situation. a not reasonable solution. and the end. the psychological problem, who could reflect the case of each of us is the essence of the force of this so simple animation. and the emotion of the last part. because "French Roast" is more an answer than a show. to an if who is far to be eccentric. to the risk to lose the respect and the high reputation because a stupid error. result - an admirable short film.impeccable for each detail.
