A man’s struggle to light his cigar places him up against his
subconscious enemy: the fear of not being a ‘real’ man. This unseen
menace pushes him into conflict with large men, a silent farmer, an
elderly couple, and a girl he fancies. He fights in the only manner
he knows, quiet persistence. In the end, his inner demon vanquishes
his doggedness and he is left with a mysterious lesson.
