‘Nutmeg’ is a riot of colors, and a deliberate and entertaining disarray. A group of boys move about the limited physical space of this bottle episode-esque set-up. A boy is very disappointed at not making it to the football team. The spectators to his sorrow include lackeys, stoners, uninterested lurkers, and of course, the viewer.

The narrative does a commendable job of maintaining consistency of approach, and roping in a sense of absurdism, while exhibiting deep potential in storytelling. It further evidences innovative use of surroundings and aesthetics to share its intentions with you, leaving one with the promise of more storytelling on similar lines.
