Desperate hopes override common sense as two criminals attempt to enlist the help of random strangers passing by. The police officer fans her face in the heat and boredom. No doubt her intelligent mind is rebelling against the assignments given to her: brainless small-time crooks. She longs for the day when she can match wits with a criminal mastermind. Although her job leaves her with much time alone in her car, she cannot enjoy her quiet moments, knowing these will be interrupted by the shrieks of chunky-heeled, loud-mouthed hustlers. She could ignore them, but a duty is a duty. Trapped in a cage with people she despises, playing a role she does not want to play, she recalls what philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre once wryly noted: “Hell is other people.” [Exir Kamalabadi]
