The truth is a jumping off place, Kate.
It's my story. I can add hope if I want.
Order is the name of the game in this D.C. proofreading office, but things are all off today. It’s 90 degrees in October, an error has been made on a major account, and someone is going to be fired. As three proofreaders ponder their futures, they become haunted and inspired by memories of a coworker whose body may have washed up on the Potomac today. Who is the next to go? Or are they already gone? A dark comedy about the ways in which we try to stay afloat.
