SYNOPSIS
Twenty-five years from now, a pair of homeless people, one deaf and the other pregnant and undocumented, are desperate and need a place to work in an upside down economy. They and work in a warehouse that preys on people like them and they realize that the boxes they pack have more worth than the vagabonds who pack them. Their only hope might be to form community with people who don’t even share a common language. Inspired by John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath.
