Synopsis Life after university may be just dandy for people with passion and drive, but what happens if you are aimless, dreamless and hopeless? With no goals or ambition in life, a fresh graduate believes that she is an oddball destined for mediocrity. Her perfect solution is to be a slacker and to work part-time at a 12 dollar store. Unfortunately, the mundane life and wacky colleagues just add to her melancholy. The array of eccentric characters at the 12 dollar store speaks volumes on how the new generation perceives their less-than-rosy future.

Remarks shared after Festival visit

"As comedy producers, the audience’s laughter is the primary motivation of us to keep on our hard work. Besides relying on the collective efforts of the cast and crew, gaining recognition from the audience is also an essential elements to complete a film. I would like to thank NAE for bringing this work to the Taiwanese audience, not only could we exchange ideas with them, but also experience the culture of Taiwan Short Film Festival."
