Michael has a routine. Every day at noon, he heads to his favorite local park where he sits and enjoys the sun on the same bench. However, this time is slightly different, he is greeted by a mysterious woman who soon seems to know everything about him. However, he doesn't recall ever meeting her.Written by
Two cameras were used to shoot the film; a consumer grade camcorder for the main scenes and the Samsung Galaxy S3 cellphone for the night scene. See more »
There are only a few of us, Michael, who believe we are here for a reason while others believe it's just all fun before death.
I don't remember telling you my name.
You haven't today.
[Michael signs, rubbing his head]
Then how do you know my name?
I know everything about you, Michael.

The home media release contains an alternate cut of the film which runs about a minute shorter. The slight changes are:
The ending of the flashback is shortened.
Michael's back and forth pacing is cut down to half its time.
A good short story. A man meets a stranger on a bench where he eats lunch every day, the stranger seems to know his whole life story and he must come to grips with his past. Acting was decent for a small Canadian short and they did a good job of getting the mood down as well as making the characters believable. I am fond of east coast accents so I enjoyed that part and didn't find it distracting. I found the focusing of the camera at certain parts a bit distracting on my eyes as I found it would focus on the trees behind then the actress then back to the trees and I found I was looking at the trees behind more then I was the actors Overall as a short film it was good and would recommend for someone wanting to see something that's different and not the usual fare that is out there in today's world.
