Scenes From A Sofa

A man confines himself to his sofa and leads a jaded existence upon it for six months. He watches television all day and tries to fend off his girlfriend, cleaner, friend and psychotherapist, who periodically drop in to rouse him from his disillusioned stupor. Eventually, his girlfriend forces him to travel and he returns with an appreciation of life and the people around him.
