"A short, snappy fantasy of unexpected interactions among very unlikely characters, including a trio of flying businessmen. The surreal narration playfully kidnaps our imagination, taking us beyond the everyday world." -- WGBH press release

In this work written, produced, and directed by Dennis Day, trios of flying businessmen, cowgirls, and women who appear to have walked off the surface of a billboard roam city streets and suburban sprawl. Additional characters make appearances in this brightly-colored landscape, which appears to be populated by icons of popular culture. It is approximately ten minutes long.

The original soundtrack is by Peter Ghemling.
