Happy Hour

A lonely woman at a motel,
The rain is pouring .
A telephone call that fails to connect
Who is she waiting for?

”Happy Hour” is a film about ordinary misunderstandings in human communications. About beIng out of time with the world around you. Maybe the final comfort is to express yourself through the dancing body?
