The fourth story is about a family living on a tight budget. When the landlord raises the rent, the entire family has to squeeze their budget even tighter to be able to make ends meet. The fifth story is about an actor who's quit smoking. When his latest role is that of a smoker, and the director insists on it, he finds himself in a difficult situation.
