Starring Michael D. Cohen

A film by James Brylowski

The government has implemented mandatory corner inspections for buildings classified as C- 404's, where civilians go; grocery stores, malls, furniture stores. Rory Hurthing is a dedicated, and passionate, corner inspector. His meticulous attention to detail drives his clients insane, especially furniture store manager Nanci Haloom. Nanci doesn't have time for Rory's absurd, and painstakingly slow, corner inspecting methods. When Nanci has had enough, she brings in a corner-cutting newcomer to replace Rory, Rory must decide if he will stay true to himself, or keep his job. It becomes apparent that this is one business where you can't cut corners.
