Small town--With BIG issues..
Stressed out midlife, social worker Holly Weytuwhyte asks for a transfer from her demanding city job at a regional not-for-profit, community support organization. She is immediately transferred to small town Northern Alberta.
Thinking this is an ideal way to decompress, she quickly discovers that it's more than she bargained for. Her new co-workers include Constance “Cookie” her extremely eccentric boss and Harry, the “on site”, IT/building maintenance Guru, who helps (or hinders?) with even more madness and mayhem. "Be careful what you wish for, it may be far, FAR worse than you ever imagined!"

    Not bad for No budget - No crew - and no incestuous industry contacts.

    That was absolutely funny. There is more then just people doing stupid sh*t. There is a lot to work from with a story line like that. I world say it would be like the Office just 10 x better because 1- Everyone has been there (thinking the grass is greener on the other side) 2- you wouldn't have to have a famous person holding your show together. 3- and the last, anyone from a small town would understand.

    Music: 10/10
    Acting: 10/10
    Audio : 8/10 (at some points was low audio)

    Need to put more footage of what the show is offering , with this i mean put more funny moments because the viewers are never satisfied they want more ,more,more, funny moments as much as you can. (At the end of the day you need to feel like there is still more to do, not to feel like you have done your best.)

    Great to see some local talent present a current life issue with humor, talent, ... and more humor - the best medicine for burnout! The secret to success .... guaranteed to make you laugh and forget all about that 'burnout'! :)

    Could be a good comedy if they get creative with the office employees and the patients' problems.
