Abby (played by Andra Carlson), takes a job as a home security operator, but it is during the graveyard shift. She works long & hard hours, only to come home and sleep all day. Well, she tries to anyway. She repeatedly get’s intrrupted by a noisey bum (played by Gill Gayle), who makes loud noises all day around a dumbster that is right by her window of her apartment.
All Abby wants is sleep & rest from her hard nights work, but this one bum insists on bothering her. He is a scary, toothless, and scared faced dirty man with a reason of his own for hanging around that particular dumpster. After several days of being interrupted by the bum and getting no sleep, Abby tries asking him “nicely” to be quiet so she can sleep. He goes away..for now. The next day, he’s back and noisey again. After that, Abby comes home trying to park at her apartment and he & his shopping cart of belongings are in her parking space. She nicely asks him to move it. She then goes an extra step of niceness and gives him some spare change, but he doesn’t take it. He want’s something else of Abby’s.
One night after going to a friends party, Abby comes home a little drunk, only to be awakened by the bum who is right inside of her apartment. He quickly ducked tapes her and takes her back to his hideaway. It is there that the bum get’s what he really wants from Abby…to find out what it is and what is to become of Abby, I recommend THROWAWAY.
I thought this started out as a good film. It had a budget, a good actress, & the story kept me interested enough to find out what happens to her. I wasn’t too impressed by the actor’s performance as the Bum, but in the end, it has a twist as far as WHAT he actually wanted from her and many others. And as far as what happens to Abby..well, it was another twist ending and leaves it open, in a way. It wasn’t great, but interesting enough to watch.
