A search for a birthday present for the loved one ends with an unusual fulfillment. Michael scouts the city stores all day long and gathers several less-than-perfect presents, yet the personages he meets on the way will return to host him and Julie on a bonus trip out of reality. Although raw in the directing and the acting, this low-budget featurette aims for its own, unabashed lyrical expression. With hand-drawn animation. Filmed on S-16 mm in and around San Francisco.
