At the end of her shift, Madchen, a young diner waitress, waits for a ride home. But on this particular afternoon, Madchen’s encounters with three everyday people in her life – Leonard: a regular at her diner; Beth: a fellow waitress; and Davis: her boyfriend – shed harsh light on her troubled and restless state. Each meeting magnifies her heartaches as well as her hopes, forcing Madchen to face the conflicting and confining truths of her life.
Stranded on a two-lane highway, caught in the gloaming, Madchen teeters between the small-town world she knows and the greater world that is beginning to beckon.
