A pen, a pad, and a day-dream a tango and a flicker is a montage of snapshots of two vagabonds in their thirties with a pocket full of day-dreams, all in on what could be. On chasing Kodak seconds, buzzed on cheap red wine and Hollywood endings, or as close to all in as could be. "Take a chance. Take that ride, and take that sip. Then pen it on paper, and lie. And someday, someday, someday, it'll be a color. It'll be like fiction."
