Two stories, two different styles. First, a hot dog stand beneath a railway bridge. The end of a relationship. In an almost floating sequence shot, the camera glides towards the couple; then an abrupt cut. A fast-cut sequence broken up by static images: a young man regrets ending his relationship with his girlfriend, and buys a dog to soothe his pain.
