It's midnight in the forlorn warehouses of the Branch Hill Industrial Supply Company. A band of low-rung employees have been called in late on special assignment, coincidentally on the same night the promotion to the mythic position of Corporate Representative might finally be available...but only for tonight. This odd little comedy investigates if there’s anything they won't compromise, sacrifice or betray to get ahead, and where the hell "ahead" even is.
