@04:09Awesome short film. Most short animations are too surreal, this is something everyone gets.

Working overtime can be murder...

What happens when you let your work get on top of you?

Meet John Stark, put-upon junior executive at M.T.S. Pharmaceuticals. Working to meet his budget deadlines late into the night, his paperwork literally takes on a life of its own, as, tired of being subjugated and confined to filing cabinet prisons, it rebels against its master.

Now, John must fight to stay alive, in a decidedly hostile working environment.
