Description:
  A young man wakes up in the morning, opens his refrigerator, takes out a plastic bottle of orange juice, drinks from it, and then spits all the juice out. This is how the short movie Oranges begins. From this point on, the young man develops a habit of stealing oranges from his neighbor garden. Every morning he passes by the tree and grabs a couple of oranges to eat or squeeze into juice.

In parallel, his neighbor, an old man, develops another habit: every morning he stands at his window, watches the young man steal away his oranges, and never stirs an inch. This continues on for a number of days until the old man decides to take action.
