He convinces Olivia and Codman to join him in spending their last night before graduation locked inside the cinema's concrete walls. None of them can open the box before sunrise. Over the course of the night, the trio is then forced to face one another, the events of the past year, and whatever is to come when the new day dawns.Emily Franklin's Last Night at the Circle Cinema is the story of a friendship's end and moving rebirth.
