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.

Then 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 ...

Nice 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.
