Three and a Half
Three artists – a writer, a director and a painter – imagine three stories of
yearning and loneliness. The writer tells a story of an old man on the edge of
a life-altering decision, haunted by the death of his wife. The director presents a tale of a friendship between two Yugoslavian immigrants, at odds because of one friend’s difficulty in adapting to his new culture and homeland. Finally, the painter creates a picture of a young immigrant woman who is secluded in her apartment, but finds herself drawn into a relationship with a window repairman. The artists’ visions become a reality when they meet their fictional characters while on a subway together, weaving a surreal thread of unity between their separate lives.
