Director Dean Peterson Attending.

In this ‘quirky comedy character study,’ Beth is decidedly a misfit, the only female employee at a sausage company and the family breadwinner, living with her mom and brother, misfits themselves. When she meets her polar opposite, the outgoing Kendra, sparks fly.

Beth supports her mother, an isolated woman who obsessively watches Julia Roberts movies, and her brother, an outsider artist whose world was shattered after a failed relationship. Living day-to-day and week-to-week, Beth’s life is one of ordered tedium. She is unprepared for the likes of Kendra, a waitress who can neither hold down a job nor a relationship. An engaging slice-of-life story with standout performances.
