Storyline

Ann has a multi-day appearance as a contestant on a game show. On her first appearance, the questions asked are about her neighbors, about who she knows nothing except for Jerry and Ruthie. On her next appearance on the show in three days, she learns that the questions will be along the same vein of knowing neighbors. Beyond the fact of wanting to win money on the show, Ann laments the fact that she really doesn't know the neighbors in her building. As hard as she tries through general hallway chit-chat, her neighbors are less than forthcoming about themselves. Based on an off-the-cuff innocent comment by Donald, Ann figures that a good way to bring her and her neighbors together is to create a crisis around which to bond. The ploy works. But after the follow-up get-to-know each other party in Ann's apartment, Ann regrets getting to know her neighbors as her purse containing $50 goes missing.

Trivia

While the title does remind us of Thomas Merton's book of essays "No Man Is An Island" wherein he reflects on one's relationship to god and, largely, to oneself in the construction of that relationship, "Mediations XVII," by the 15th/16th-century English clergyman and poet John Donne, is perhaps a better fit for a source of this title: "No man is an island entire of itself; every man/ . . . is a part of the main." This poem is also the source for Ernest Hemingway's title of his Spanish Civil War novel, published in 1940, and starring Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman in the movie version: For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943).
