A prize claw machine spews out spotted mice and golden teeth in the lobby of a Holiday Inn express; a girl waits in the lobby to compete in a children’s sports conference; outside of Paris in 1873, a woman who owns a printing press works to finish her edition of racetrack ballads; a be-kerchiefed woman looks for something valuable in a pile of sodden toys in the stand of trees behind the conference center; the workers throw their shoes into the machine; a sinister hermit hides in the forest in a tent; a young man walks home from the racetrack through the forest after losing his money.
