2019 · 5:00 · written by Anna Coughlan · produced by Lee Perna · directed by William R. Coughlan

Rick and Lucy, two creative office workers, find themselves — and the rest of their office mates — behaving in increasingly outlandish ways, all while a mysterious laughter punctuates their actions. As they try to get to the bottom of the situation, they slowly realize there may be no escape from their predicament.
