Synopsis

Ignored by his peers and isolated in his bedroom, the student lives day to day without purpose or genuine social contact. During the course of his daily walks to and from class, he repeatedly encounters a passerby who obliviously walks straight ahead of him, forcing the student to move aside at the last minute. Little by little, the student grows contemptuous and devises a scheme that will force the passerby to acknowledge his presence. Eventually he carries out his plan but the results are not what he anticipates.
