Ah, the working world is full of valuable lessons. Commitment! Responsibility! Total humiliation! When four teenagers start their very first jobs, it doesn't seem like rocket science to babysit, wait tables, pass out flyers, or work at a movie theater, but it's not long before they find out that in the minimum-wage world, the customer is king...a brutal, ruthless king. This funny, biting comedy is an ode to anyone who's ever had to tell the worst customer in the world to "have a nice day."
