In this unique cinematic experiment from acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh, an unlikely love triangle is born at a doll factory in a small midwestern town fallen on hard times. Lonely and isolated, long time employees Martha and Kyle have become friends by default in spite of their drastic age difference, but their dynamic is upset by the arrival of a new worker: young, attractive single mother Rose. As Martha grows increasingly wary about Rose's dubious character, she discovers Kyle and Rose developing a relationship of their own. Following a violent murder an investigation begins, that will call into question our established assumptions about these characters and life in their small town. Featuring a cast of non-professional actors, Soderbergh brings this tragic story of characters striving to establish and maintain meaningful connections to life with startling realism.
