This movie is interesting. The lead character is so smart that he finds the way avoid a commuter rush and commutes without stress. But one day, a sexy lady found him and joined him, then other men followed one after another. He looked like a "fish out of the water." How does get back to the stress free commuting like before? At the end of the story, everybody must feel exhilarated.
