Synopsis

Stanley (Richard Jenkins) has worked the night shift for 38 years at Oscar’s Chicken and Fish. He decides to finally retire, but on his last weekend at the fast food restaurant, he has to train his replacement, Jevon (Shane Paul McGhie). The young man is a talented writer who's experiencing writer's block. His provocative politics keep landing him in trouble. These two who share little in common are brought together through circumstance.

Stanley, a high school dropout who has watched life pass by his drive-through window, proudly details the nuances of the job to his young replacement. Meanwhile Jevon, a columnist who’s really too smart to be flipping patties, talks to Stanley about how their labor is being exploited. A flicker of comradery sparks during the long overnight hours in a quiet kitchen.
