It's Monday morning and the first day of working life for young Nin (Hoze Meléndez). He's starting a job as a warehouse supervisor, taking over a position held for almost 30 years by the soon-to-retire Mr. Lino (José Carlos Ruiz, One for the Road), whose immaculate standards and exacting routines often dip into the absurd. As rookie and veteran settle into their week of transition, nerves fray, customs are challenged, and an unusual, unexpected camaraderie develops between the two men while waiting for a delivery that, in true Waiting for Godot fashion, never seems to materialize. This smart, sly Mexican satire by director Jack Zagha and screenwriter David Desola follows up their acclaimed 2014 comedy One for the Road, and won the Audience Award at the Morelia Film Festival. Warehoused is a perceptive tale about work, duty, and the (questionable) importance of following rules and regulations in a world that always seems ready to throw them out.
