Synopsis: Michael Stone, an author that specializes in customer service, is a man who is unable to interact deeply with other people. His low sensitivity to excitement, and his lack of interest made him a man with a repetitive life on his own perspective. But, when he went on a business trip, he met a stranger - an extraordinary stranger, which slowly became a cure for his negative view on life that possibly will change his mundane life.

to see in the city.

Revitalized downtown...

I'm only here for a day.

What? I'm just here for a day.

You know, I'm sorry.

I'm not getting that.

The accent.

I'm just here for a day.

Well, the zoo then.

You don't need more

than a day for the zoo.

It's just zoo-sized.

And the chili.

You only need, like,

an hour for the chili.

Hey, that's Michael stone.

Michael stone.

Harris, can you get

these bags, please?

That's Michael stone.

Hello. Welcome to the Fregoli.

Hi, I'm checking in. Stone.

Welcome, Mr. stone.

Oh, there we go. Michael stone.

Smoking, king-sized bed.

And you'll be with us

for just one night, sir?

One night. Yes.

I'll just need

to make an imprint

of your credit card,

for incidentals,

and we'll be all set.

I'd like a quiet room,

if you have one.

Yes, sir. Of course.

I have a charming deluxe smoking

junior suite on the tenth floor

with a king-sized bed.

Far above the street noise.

That sounds good. Great.

So it's all set then.

Dennis here will

show you to your room.

Oh, thank you.

Right this way, sir.

My name is Dennis. Hi.

After you, sir.

So how was your trip in?

It was fine, thanks.


Bumpy? At all? Uh, no.

I'm sorry? No.

Oh, well, you're safe now.

I think the room will

be to your liking, sir.

Just up here to the left, sir.

There you go, after you.

Nice weather we're having. Yeah.

What? Yes.

Yes, the weather is very good.

Very, very, very, very good.

Sixty-eight degrees Fahrenheit.

And here we are.

After you, sir.

It's the bathroom.

Air conditioning and

heat controls here.

TV, remote control. Mini-bar.

All self-explanatory, I think.


Ice machine down the hall.

And would you like me to get

you some ice before I leave?

No, I'm okay, thanks.

Here you go.

Oh. Thank you very much, sir.
