    see all cast/crew...
Studio: New Yorker Video

Running Time: 98 min.

A cat and a mouse carry on a dysfunctional relationship in a futuristic landscape. A Chinese monk sets out on foot with a tiger during the Tang dynasty and happens upon the giant Buddhas of Bamiyan. Two blu-collar workers dissect the meaning of 'normal' life, as the world crumbles around them. A box of matches succumb, to their detriment, to the appeal of a cigarette. Four people recount their various encounters -- triumphant or terrifying, euphoric or down-to-earth -- with an unforgettable rite of passage.
