The Parking Lot Movie
In Charlottesville, Virginia we find what the locals refer to only as The Corner Parking Lot. Under the guidance of their boss and "spiritual leader" Chris Farina, the parking attendants have created a microcosm of their own, where few of society's unwritten rules apply. Furnished with a miniature booth and a shared contempt for big cars and wealthy college kids, the ragtag team of attendants spend their days hanging out.
