A dejected man sits outside his house in a London Street. A stranger stops and offers sympathy, while the man tells of his despair at his wife leaving him. Brian Lighthill, who made the film, writes “We cannot solve other people’s problems, but we can, if we choose to, sit, listen and be a mirror for another person, so that through us they will see themselves more clearly. And if the listener is very ‘still’ the mirror image will be that much clearer.”
This film is of historical interest but the film quality may not be to modern standards.’
