Infatuated with a tattooed woman, the bar keeper desires her but all he can do is look. She, is fully aware of the power she commands over his weakness, it is a weakness that she knows how to capitalise on.

This very short silent film is an exercise in visual narrative technique while dealing with issues of the “Male gaze”, voyeurism and exhibitionism. References: Laura Mulvey, Balthus, Alberto Moravia.
