A Man worried about a job interview is tormented by a loudspeaker kept on all night. A woman goes to the tailor to get a dress sewn for her daughter but there is much more at stake

More than just clothes. A man who makes a living mending watches measures his life by routine, but his life is thrown into confusion when he’s dragged into a conflict of which he wants no part. some are sad and all take the reader into the curious world that makes up living in Sri Lanka today.
