Two Workouts
29 August 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Same meets a beautiful young, athletic woman and then overuses his tired body to impress her. He cycles, climbs, swims, runs, on and on, until there is little left of him. The other plot involves Rebecca using Norms modest painting abilities as a springboard to her promotional skills. This one has a particularly fun ending.
