A man spends his whole life pretending to be a writer and as a result never has an authentic experience. A young couple tries to escape a war zone, but the two warring factions constantly try to force them to pick a side. A futuristic soldier rethinks his life while he is trapped in a fox hole, pinned down by enemy robot fire. An old boxer grows tired of hitting people and life. A father tells his son about his "wild years" and the son realizes that his father is really just a big pussy. A young man gives himself entirely over to fantasy and spends his days fighting a Cyclops and an Invisible Menace. An artist tries to communicate complex ideas through interpretive dance and realizes that, on some level, he must take into account the vernacular of the audience. A fisherman and his crew are bested by a whale and almost starve on the open water. After a man-made accident, a man and woman realize that they have super powers and after denying it they come to accept their awesome responsibility. An older office worker writes a graphic novel and after years of hiding it away starts showing it to people despite being terrified of criticism. A man realizes that scientific inquiry always has its risks- especially if society does not like what you discover. A man berates the hipsters on bikes blocking the sidewalk as he is trying to walk by the Middle East club... in Central Square.
