This short amateur film by John McLaren tells the story of a man who goes on a run and winds up in a western-style shoot out. The film begins at home, where the man’s wife is cooking dinner. The man looks in the mirror and is dissatisfied with his body, so he puts on a pair of running shoes and goes out for a run. While pausing to catch his breath, he is suddenly transported to the train station of a wild west town, where saloon dancers and a cowboy come out of the saloon to get a glimpse. The man winds up in a show down with the cowboy. Who will win?
