It’s the last day of business before Godfrey Global Inventory shuts down for good. The beleaguered employees at GGI – Janet, Jason, Misty, and Mort – have laboured for years without really understanding their mind-numbing work routine. The enigmatic Mr. Godfrey and his officious sister Esther promise the staff $1 million each if they stay and work through the night to complete the company’s remaining “unfinished business”.
As the night wears on, the workers are forced to face the truth: processing the last of their inventory may lead to cataclysmic consequences.
Tagline:A dark comedy with a supernatural spin about a group of laid-off workers at a mysterious company who are bribed into working one last night, only to discover that processing the last of their inventory may lead to cataclysmic consequences.
One moment Charles (Fred Ewanuick) is alone in his living room, the next moment there’s rain and thunder and lightning, then a branch suddenly materializes out of nowhere and crashes to the floor in front of him. Then it all just disappears, just like that, leaving no trace behind.
Before he’s able to process the bizarre event, it starts raining outside, only this time for real. Then there’s a huge crack of thunder, and a bolt of lightning suddenly shoots down and hits a tree across the street and a branch breaks off and falls to the ground.
Is Charles losing his mind? Was it all just a really strong case of déjà vu, as Audrey (Chelah Horsdal), his girlfriend, later suggests? Or could it be that maybe, just maybe, he’s developed the unpredictable ability to see two minutes into the future?

Lexie’s one goal is to fall madly in love and she is holding out for Mr. Right to come knocking on the door of her Bed & Breakfast. In small town Nova Scotia, though, finding your soul mate can be at best… challenging. To make matters worse, Lexie is the oldest of three sisters and sees herself as the flawed, least attractive daughter of perfect parents.
Lexie envies the lives of her sisters: her younger sister Beth who has a devoted husband to keep her happy and constantly pregnant; and her youngest sister Gabby who is "movie star" beautiful and about to marry her perfect guy, a successful financial wizard. At 30 years of age…and pounds overweight, Lexie’s had no such luck but is sure her ideal soul mate will turn up, someday. Sooner would be better, she thinks, as she listens to the passionate lovemaking of her overnight guests. A compulsive overeater, Lexie indulges in cookies and romantic fantasies — contrary to the opinions of Joss, the gruff handyman fixing her leaky roof, and who seems particularly fond of Lexie. Not that she notices.
Then, one day it happens! A charming, handsome stranger named Adrian shows up at Lexie’s bed and breakfast looking for a place to stay. All the signs are there. This is her romantic story about to come to life. When the romance inevitably falls apart, Lexie abandons all hope that love will ever happen for her. Then, when tragedy strikes her family, she begins to believe that perhaps neither love, nor happiness, really exists at all.
As Lexie rebels against everyone who tries to help her, including Joss, she sinks deeper and deeper, away from the life she thought she'd be living. Eventually, she is forced to see that although everyone she knows has a flawed, and difficult love, that love really does exist is undeniable. Now she must decide if she can open her mind up enough to let go of the notion of a storybook romance, and let a more "relative" romance into her life.
