120 WORD SYNOPSIS: Alex, a half Korean/half Jewish acting student, is mistaken to be Chinese and hired to work the graveyard shift of a mailroom dominated by first generation Chinese men. Here, he enters an industrial world of working men dominated by rage and exhaustion. The warehouse lunchroom serves as an arena for connection and confusion. Amid several languages spoken and men old enough to be Alex’s grandfather, Alex encounters a middle aged white man that sits in the back stewing in his pain-drenched rage completely ignored by the other workers. Alex tries to make sense of it all and learns to see his life outside the warehouse as surreal until it all unravels and changes the way he sees the world.
