Infuriated by his mindless desk job, Charlie sets out to quit, only to be stopped in his tracks by his personal inability to take a risk. After much prodding from an annoying roommate and a growing fondness towards a co-worker, Charlie must decide if he can muster the strength to actually put himself out there, despite the outcome.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
