Original dialogue(s):English
Running time:85 min sec
Description:Set in downtown Toronto, a thirty-something couple are living together and are about to be married. But Jack leaves a message on Jill's answering machine at work telling her he's had second thoughts. She calmly embarks on an ice-cream-eating binge, and then heads off to the bookstore for a more substantial form of escapism. Although she winds up with a sappy Herman Wouk paperback, she becomes interested in the book clerk, and Jack, who is tagging along, spots an intriguing girl in the magazine section.
