Local Focus - Block 2 is Sponsored by Miller Lumber.

A meditation on the role of serendipity and dreaming in a life otherwise bound by routine. Ray, restless and disillusioned working his white collar nine-to-five, encounters the gorgeous and bohemian Elenore in the street one morning. This fortuitous crossing-of-paths sets off an infatuation in both of them, manifested in vivid dreams, until a mutual friend, Carmen, occasions another chance encounter.
