A view of the inner-struggle within a man who is in a coma. His two sides are personified as a film-noir detective and a Texas high stakes gambler. The struggle? A game of chess. We come in part of the way through the game, within only a few moves, one of the inner-selves will win. After some comically stereotypical lines, the detective wins. Once his fate is decided, we cut to the man in the coma as his heart fails and he dies.
