"This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done. The best way to create hope is to create opportunity."
This is not exactly representative of what I think of when "short film" is referred to... It is merely a woman repeating an old piece of wisdom; the kind of banal things one finds on a fridge magnet. And I say this having actually read this story from a fridge magnet.
