  • Josh (Josh Kornbluth) is living a temporary existence--from his fast food diet to his fleeting relationships, to his means of supporting himself. He is an office temp. But when he gets an assignment with law firm Schuyler & Mitchell and he is asked to go permanent as a secretary for mysterious lawyer Bob Shelby, he finds that it just may be his temporary status that keeps him on his feet. For his first assignment, Bob gives Josh 17 very important letters to mail out--but by the end of the week, Josh discovers that working on his novel during work is much easier than completing the letters. As the situation becomes more critical, Josh finds that circumstances beyond his control--including a tough night watchman and a beautiful young criminal lawyer--stand in the way of his goal.

    HAIKU TUNNEL is based upon a semi-autobiographical monologue by Josh Kornbluth detailing the experiences he gathered as a temp while trying to support his writing. A successful initial run in San Francisco in 1990 allowed Kornbluth to tour the country with the show. This screen version, co-written and co-directed by his brother Jacob, retains its monologue roots and is sure to get a nod of recognition from any viewer who has done time in a corporate environment.
