Description: Fed up with the rat-race, and discontented with his family life, a middle-aged man manages to pick up a hare on the road and it becomes his boon companion. He talks to it, feeds it, and puts it to bed tenderly. In return, the hare twitches its nose occasionally. However, when he is stopped for questioning by the police, it manages to do him a good turn.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
