|Plot||Asked afterward what his biggest challenge was in making this film, Muniain replied, "It's an hour in a room." His solution is to sporadically cut away from said room to clips from Young's films, including hard-to-find works like Caught and even harder-to-find films like Alambrista! and Cortile Cascino.
