Experiencing Interruptions?

Closing Time

Jerry Faulk is an aging bartender at a roadhouse dive bar who on a particularly slow night has a chance encounter with a very unusual patron named Michael. As the lonely night rolls on, the two find that while they have more in common than they could have ever expected, nothing about this encounter is exactly as it seems.
