An ode to filmmaking. A still photographer’s car breaks down en route to his wedding. Before him, a bride waits on a balcony – in her wedding gown. The photographer observes reality through his windscreen as it becomes interwoven with the world of film in his imagination, through a series of references, nods, and quotes from various other films: he has a vision of Charlie Chaplin and sees two men carrying a wardrobe, just like in Roman Polanski’s student short when all the while, a giant billboard poster advertising Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window hangs just behind him.
