Set against the canvas of the early 1990's, an older woman named Tommy works as a lunch lady. Every passing day is another drop of disappointment into the bucket of misery she lives in. When Tommy was young and in college, she had an opportunity to go on a "study-abroad program". That was her dream. But the odds were stacked against her. Tommy's attempts of ever getting out of her comfort zone had hit a concrete wall, and she begun her journey to a life of depression and routine.

Director Biography - Dennis Mulyar

Throughout the duration of my entire life I have always carried within me a strong urge and intense desire to work with my hands and to create. Born into a family of musicians and artists, creativity was just another one of my inherited traits. As far back as I can remember, I have always been fascinated with moving stills, every so often pulling out old family tapes and reliving the past moments. As time went on and I grew older, I acquired even more incentive for my ambition of connecting the audience to an active personal experience; a feeling, a recollection, a moment in life. Even with every passing day today I grow in conviction that there is nothing more that I would rather do than create stories that reach down to the very core of the human soul.
