Hurt & Save follows Tom as he ventures into the sanctity of people's homes and bedrooms in order to demonstrate his bed's healing qualities. Along the way he's introduced to a canary by a spry widow, gets a tour of a lewd painting collection, listens to a depressed man's account of his suicide attempt, and hones his sales techniques to hilarious effect at a monthly sales meeting.
