Synopsis

A full-length feature developed from the Academy Award-nominated short film.

When art student Ben Willis is dumped by his girlfriend Suzy, he develops insomnia. To pass the long hours, he starts working the late-night shift at the local supermarket. There he meets a colourful cast of characters, all of whom have their own 'art' of dealing with the boredom of an eight-hour shift. Ben's art is that he imagines himself stopping time. This way, he can appreciate the artistic beauty of the frozen world and the people inside it - especially Sharon, the quiet checkout girl, who perhaps holds the answer to the problem of Ben's insomnia.
