THE STORY: PASSPORT, deals with a lonely middle-aged newspaperman, a little the worse for drink and sadly convinced of his ineffectiveness and failure as a person. Out of his monologue spoken perhaps with the aching desire that someone will miraculously hear, and care, comes a remarkable portrait of a man alone—wanting to feel alive again but reconciled to an existence without real meaning or purpose.
