In the tradition of classic westerns, a narrator sets up the story of a lone gunslinger who walks into a saloon. However, the people in this saloon can hear the narrator and the narrator may just be a little bit bloodthirsty.
A middle-aged woman battles her loneliness and boredom by robbing banks in the guise of a cowboy on her lunch break. But after the adrenaline rush wears off, she still has to deal with her deeply unhappy life. Inspired by a true story.
Fran likes to think about dying. When she makes a guy in the office laugh, he wants more - a movie date, a slice of pie, a conversation. But if dating him means learning to live, she's pretty sure she can't do that.
An admirable work. That is it. A phone talk. The parenthood . The terrible truth. All simple but impeccable. The cinematography, the dialogue, the landscapes, the powerful message. And something else who can be only feel. A film about a father and his son. About the right and its roots of father to keep his boy. And the fall of his entire world, in brutal manner. Short, a film out of definitions.
