When the job of his sweetheart, who works as a receptionist for an osteopath, is threatened due to a lack of patients, Harold sets out, rather unethically, in search of some, but when he returns, a misunderstanding involving the verb “to marry” leaves him determined upon ending his own life, in this brilliantly inventive, blackly comic, and absolutely hilarious action-packed short film.
