Mr Wurfel

Mr Wurfel has a passion: he loves making decisions. In fact, he loves it so much that it took him three years, two months and nine days to decide on his new bicycle. One morning Mr Wurfel becomes entangled in an unfortunate incident. He has only a bit longer than one second to make the decision of his life.
