Amy’s life as a receptionist is a rut of emails, ergonomics and endless unrealistic expectations. She smiles politely, makes the perfect cup of coffee and has a delightful phone manner. She spends her days tackling the big issues – like the optimal temperature of the air conditioning and how to ensure the coffee machine is being appropriately cleaned. Now, on her journey to find another gluten-dairy-nut free cake for the big merger deal, Amy stops to wonder: is this her moment to escape to freedom, or the beginning of her descent into corporate oblivion?
