Synopsis:
At the laundromat, a young couple argues over the fate of the husband’s ratty but beloved hoodie. The wife wants it gone, but the husband stubbornly defends it. The standoff escalates with the wife storming off. Left behind with the laundry, the husband reminisces through his humorous cherished memories with the hoodie, while the wife recalls the past with it as embarrassing and horrific. With their memories tumbling by, some begin to sway their hearts. In the end, struggling to hold his hoodie over the garbage bin, the husband must decide whether or not it’s finally time to let it go.
