Synopsis: A dark comedy about the consequences of voyeurism, featuring a couple of guys in a high rise office building and a pair of binoculars.
Tommy: a successful salesman
Jason: a younger, less successful salesman
“Tommy brings Jason into his office to give him some advise on how to become a better salesman – and to brag about all of his latest accomplishments. Jason is really impressed by the view from Tommy’s window. With binoculars they spy on people, including a secretary in the building across the way. When they accidentally spot a crime in progress, Jason wants to do something about it, but Tommy refuses. A debate ensues. What are the responsibilities of someone who only observes? What will Jason learn from Tommy before this day is done?
