Jimmy (Ash Catherwood) lives a perfect life: He has a beautiful life,
Elise (Vanessa Burns), a good and well-paying job, a nice home, and he
shags sexually insatiable Lexi (Ginette Gaskin) on the side without his
wife ever finding out. There is just one thing wrong with Jimmy, actually:
He's a total asshole: He treats his wife like dirt, his mistress like a
whore, and seems to be out to make as many enemies at work as can be.
one day, his wife recieves a bouquet of flowers from him, as if to make up
for all his mistakes. Trouble is of course, he has never sent her any
flowers, even if all evidence points to the opposite. Later, Jimmy
recieves photos of somebody shagging his wife, and even though he himself
is cheating on her out of habit, this drives him up the wall. Yet later,
Jimmy recieves a phonecall, a call from the man who has obviously sent the
flowers and shagged his wife, who bluntly tells Jimmy he wants to destroy
him for the asshole he has become.
The whole situation gets Jimmy so
upset that he breaks up with Lexi, then moves into a hotel over the
weekend because he just can't face Elise right now. When he returns to
work on Monday, he finds out that he has no job no more, seems he has
resigned on Fridayin the most blunt and insulting of manners. Thing is,
Jimmy is sure he hasn't done any of this.
Jimmy recieves another
phonecall from his mystery caller, a phonecall that puts him on the other
man's trail ...

short done in the tradition of classic short stories or series like Twilight
Zone where tales that get weirder by the minute ultimately end
on a punchline that nobody would have expected. Add to this a decent cast
and a subtle directorial effort and you are left with rather entertaining
25 or so minutes.
