Documents my first days in Chicago, nearly living on the skids, working at Manpower ($9 per day), not enough for rent, no furniture, and hot dogs for dinner from the local Spanish grocery store. Somehow I borrowed a camera and a motorcycle and completed this film, as if it were a necessity of life. Susan has first moved into my life and this became a film of our relationship at that time.
