Based on six loosely-connected short stories by Chekov, and set in Cleveland under a brooding rain. Director Michael Meredith attempts to highlight the small ways in which people reveal both cruelty and kindness. A wife's indifference toward a homeless person's hunger triggers a man's reevaluation of his life. A taxi driver has just lost his son, but his passenger (Danner) cannot muster an ounce of sympathy. The other stories are equally troubling, with a boozing father who takes advantage of everyone including his son, and a supervisor plotting to eliminate a mentally challenged janitor. Unfortunately these stories are no different than what you can see most days by walking out your own front door.
