Joe is in crisis, his life a swirling scribble of obligations he feels he’s failing to fulfil.
For five minutes a day he finds a little solace and peace, alone on an isolated bench.
Sandy is mourning the passing of his Maggie. The bench is his memorial to her memory. A shrine to his loss.
As both attempt to impose their purpose on the bench, so begins an epic conflict of passive aggression.
A conflict that will change the two of them, and will, maybe, finally answer the eternal question – when is a bench not a bench?
A satirical comedy about finding a safe place in a threatening world.
