Storyline

Software analysts worked to exhaustion by the sadistic and clueless management at Synergy Wireless, Dave and Craig finally say what's really their minds during an ambush conference call designed to drop an impossible workload for an impossible project on top of their already insane schedule. They manage to stall the project, but the release feels so good that they quit anyway, but not before sabotaging their boss by sending incriminating e-mail messages from his workstation. Written by Eric Prescott

Welcome to the reason Dilbert is such a popular comic strip
11 February 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a funny and insightful short film that obviously must have been inspired by yet another Dilbert-like office that demands absolute super-human effort yet is slow to reward hard work as well as points out mistakes--no matter how small. So, for all the workers who have had Dilbert's boss, this film is for you.

A telecommunications company has been pushing their employees so hard that some of them on a particular project have been sleeping at their desks at night and living in their own filth. Later, they are called to an office meeting where the hard work and sacrifices are not only ignored but they are then given NEW instructions to do a task that would take millions of dollars and countless man hours in only a few short weeks and for practically no additional money! Such is life in a crazy corporate environment.

The film has decent production values, a humorous script and good acting. Worth a look--particularly if you work in the computer field (and especially if you are working for complete idiots).
