    Samurai Salesman

    Directed by Masashi Nagadoi 1992 25 min
    KEN YAGUCHI is an ambitious Japanese toy salesman. One day, he decides to leave his wife and son in Japan to pursue his dreams of riches and fame in Los Angeles. For weeks he tries to sell his traditional Japanese toys door to door. He is not successful. Finally, the continuous harsh rejection becomes overwhelming and he finds himself alone on the beach, lost in despair. As he looks over the Pacific Ocean, he longs for his family and mourns his dreams which seem destined to never come true.

    Soon a beautiful American woman, named JODY appears on the scene and offers him a ride in her red sports car. She invites him to her house, where she eventually proposes to him. Although everything seems to be happening too quickly, he sees a chance to finally realize his dreams and to take a chance. In preparation for the wedding, she leaves the house to run errands. She tells him not to open a special cabinet until she returns. He waits, and waits and waits, but she never comes back. Finally, he can't take it anymore and approaches the forbidden cabinet. What he finds is not just shocking, but surreal.
