Jody is in his 40s and runs a map store. Not one for the outside world, he stays in his store all the time. His friend Carl is in his late 30s and has been bringing chairs of dead friends into Jody’s store and leaving them there. When Jody needs to take an AIDS test, Carl tries to convince him it’s not only okay to leave the store, but also that he must take responsibility for his life. If he doesn’t, he will join the set of chairs that Carl has taken great pains to place in the right spots around the store. Through their interaction, the two realize how grateful they are to have such a strong, lasting friendship.
