Albert

The pitiful Albert has to wake up every morning to the ringing of his dear wife's cell phone. It takes him quiet an effort to get down from the second floor, while his wife continuously agitates him to get her the phone. The situation is further complicated by the fact that both of the wife's phones are in the same bag and either one or the other starts to ring. Instead of finding the phones, he manages to uncover a few odd items, for example a baseball bat, a chainsaw, and the guardian of the bag, a Chihuahua. After a fierce fight the dog almost kills him and takes his arm off, he is forced to come up with a final solution: He jumps into the bag. After much peril, he finds one of the cell phones which he proudly brings to his wife. But by the time he gets to her, the cell phone is uncharged and instead the other phone, still lost in the bag, starts to ring. Albert cannot handle it anymore and attacks his wife... who might not be who she seems.
