As past and present collide she encounters previous lovers, artists, and her absent father.

Four people arrive to work the night shift in a meat factory. They meet for the first time. They are employed as cleaners, by a temp agency. They are all on zero-hours contracts.

The cycle goes on... And on... Strangers. Until something stirs, until isolated people get too close to one another, too fast.
