stars as an unnamed actor returning to work after several years away from the job. His newest role is the part of someone who works in a grocery store. To prepare for the role, he spends some time in a grocery store, where he meets Scarlet, played by Paz Vega
(of Sex and Lucia
fame). A friendship forms between Scarlet and Freemman's character and the rest of the movie is about getting Scarlet to try to better herself by applying for a job in another field.
Not to be confused with the teevee show of the same name.
This film provides examples of the following tropes:
- Ambition Is Evil - Subverted. Freeman's character is respected for his accomplishments, and ambition is presented as a positive thing for Scarlet.
- No Name Given - No one ever refers to Morgan Freeman's character's name. Freeman is credited as Him.
