    Synopsis

    At the end of a long day of shooting an uninspiring Christmas Movie-of-the-Week, the Boom Operator must record a minute of silence ("room tone") before everyone can go home. During this recording, the film crew must be absolutely quiet; no one can speak. However, inside everyone’s mind, a unique monologue blares. While some of these thoughts are jarring and ruminative, others are absurd and commiserative and the viewer is invited to bare witness to them all. Among these seemingly disjointed thoughts, we notice patterns of reflectiveness. Each individual, recalling a moment of regret, loss or disconnection that has led to where they are today -- heartbroken, stuck, lost and ultimately, unable to pinpoint exactly where to go from here.
