This is 16 minutes I will never get back.

The plot is simple, fitting of a short a few minutes long, nothing to comment on really, I think it was aiming for touching or sweet, somehow, but even if it wasn't a little off, everything else destroyed it.
The pacing was probably the worst part of the entire thing. Countless unnecessary cuts that just stretched on and on, this short was AGONIZINGLY slow, as well as jarring; the scene of the dream has about 6 5-10 second cuts of the old man just walking up some stairs. I wasn't counting, but I'm not about to go back ...
