In this animated short, a young man keeps thinking up elaborate scenarios in order to let fate decide whether he should stop smoking.


The film is one of a trio of animated shorts by Lynn Smith that form an anti-smoking campaign, produced by the National Film Board of Canada, with the participation of Health and Welfare Canada. Although this particular campaign was originally aimed at children, the three films have been shown on TV nationwide.
