Judd Neeman’s (PARATROOPERS) first foray into filmmaking is a three-part film. In part one, THE DRESS, a beautiful young librarian tries to win a handsome, young man’s heart with a new dress. And indeed, the man is receptive; that is, until he sees her flatmate wearing the exact same garment. In part two, THE LETTER, a young man looking to have a laugh, runs a dating ad in a local paper titled “Ugly man seeks beautiful woman.” By the time he’s already taken an interest in one of the women who’d answered the ad, it turns out she only ever did it out of sheer boredom. Finally, in part three, THOMAS RETURNS Home, Thomas is forced to move back in with his ex-wife after he is kicked out of his rented flat by his landlady. He subsequently befriends his ex’s new boyfriend and the two men end up turning their backs on her.
