  • Work Sucks

    Work Sucks Independent Some people don't like their jobs, but they go to them everyday without question. They might not be happy about it, but they're caught in the rhythm of waking up, getting coffee, going to work, working in a cubicle, going home, going to sleep, then waking up the next day and doing it all over again. This film is about a woman who doesn't like her job, but she goes because she has to work to live. With the economy the way it is and corporations having to make cuts, our main character becomes a casualty and gets fired. You would think that she'd be ecstatic and excited to lose a job she didn't like in the first place. But she's not. She's not sure what to do. This film is about turning moments like losing your job into something positive and seeing it as an opportunity to be happy for once.
