Inertia | 2000
Winnipeg is a tangled web of human desire. The citizens have very little idea of how to deal with this desire other than to act on it - which in fact only leads to despair. Joseph, a water department chemist, cannot let go of Laura, even though she's been trying to drop him for the last year. A Catholic girls' school teacher, Laura is much more interested in Bruce, an Information Technology specialist who is trying to outgrow his pleasure-seeking lifestyle and settle down with his new Japanese wife. In truth, Bruce has fallen for 19-year-old student Alex, who is Joseph's second cousin twice removed. And of course, Alex is hot for Joseph: She even tricks him into taking her into his apartment by convincing him that she's living on the street.
