In a world of mounting economic catastrophes, with job security a thing of the past Boxed In is the story of a warehouse, two workers and their obsessions. When their jobs are threatened, their warehouse world totters and they find themselves on a roller coaster ride through a nightmarish wasteland where the absurdity of life is explored with comic precision.      

Imagine Buster Keaton directing Laurel and Hardy; add a dash of absurd existentialism, a twist of Greek tragedy, flying saucers.. and boxes. Lots of boxes!
