Synopsis: The film begins with Darrell disliking his position as an intern at a corporate company, being stereotyped in the workplace and not buying into the white-collar culture of ‘going along to get along’. Darrell chooses to surround himself amongst a few bad apples; being very passive, and in many ways unintentionally mirroring the tasks set for him within the corporate world (with more brotherhood but more extreme punishment for defying instructions).
Darrell finds himself stuck between a rock and a hard place when he doesn’t like the
position he is in. The advice given to him by Ben, a violent ambitious group leader, keeps him
narrow minded to his environment until Ryan, an intelligent hustler with dreams of opening a
restaurant, shows him a mentality thanks to which Darrell starts to think about what he wants for his future. However seeing confidence which he associates with power, Darrell chooses to remain on the low level of ambition and follows his peers instead.
Characters like Julie, an extremely intelligent English Teacher and love interest, and middle class business owners and Darrell's parents: Amy and Greg, constantly share their views on a legitimate honest way of living. Yet their message falls on deaf ears because to Darrell the image of working towards building a foundation does not seem as appealing as gaining respect in his area.
