Synopsis: A recent immigrant working as a janitor struggles to adapt to his new country and menial job and shares his frustrations with his co-worker. But as the two make their cleaning rounds, they are confronted with a shocking discovery and the man realizes that happiness depends not on his station in life, but his freedom to live it.
Description: HALLWAYS was made for the IFP Phoenix 48 Hour Film Challenge in July 2012. Cast and crew included many of my past cohorts plus some new faces. As usual, it was a very long weekend, but most definitely a pleasant one due to the wonderful people on our team!
