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.
A murder is committed, an investigation begins, one that will call into
question our established assumptions about these characters and life in their small town. Featuring a cast of
non-professional actors from the Ohio location, Soderbergh brings this tragic story of characters striving to
establish and maintain meaningful connections to life with startling realism.
