Sam, Rose and Avery are the underpaid employees of one of the last remaining film projector cinemas in Massachusetts. They bicker, laugh and dream their way through shifts in the empty aisles. New kid Avery has an encyclopaedic obsession with film, and Sam has an unrequited obsession with Rose. Rose does what Rose wants to do.
With keen insight and a finely tuned comic eye, Annie Baker examines hidden corners of our existence, revealing the gems of truth that reside therein.
