The Booth at the End

The Booth at the End

In this psychological drama a mysterious Man (Xander Berkeley) sits at the booth at the end of a diner. People come to him with things they want: a parent with a sick child, a woman who wants to be prettier, a nun who wants to hear God again.

The Man can make these things happen. For a price. In exchange for what they want, these individuals must sacrifice their morals and do deeds normally inconceivable to them. Set off a bomb. Rob a bank. Kill a child. They must return to The Man and describe every step in detail.

As the characters' tasks begin to overlap, complications ensue. But The Man never forces anyone to do anything. It's always up to them to start or stop with one lingering question: how far would you go to get what you want?
