Check Out is a short comedy about Kelly and Allison, two twenty something grocery store employees who find out that the best friendships blossom when they are most needed. Both girls have found themselves in a rut; Kelly has Down Syndrome and is struggling with ambitions that sometimes reach further than her limitations allow while Allison’s complacency is stifling the happiness she really deserves.
In our story Kelly requests some time to talk to Allison, her manager about a promotion. During their meeting Allison fails to give Kelly the respect she deserves. Kelly’s disappointment with the situation leaves Allison startled but turns out to be the answer to her own problem.
