A man is stuck in a daily rut of getting up at the same time and going through the same routine. Nothing in his life is fun anymore. He doesn’t have friends and what other people find funny, he doesn’t. While everyone about him is busy, his life seems to be travelling in slow motion. Then, one day out of the blue, he spots (from his desk) a woman working in the next building over. She catches him looking at her and the two begin to communicate with signs.
It seems his life is about to take on new meaning, but sticking true to real life there are some unsigned road bumps along the journey…
