Synopsis: In an eerily quiet courtroom hallway, Lois anxiously awaits the announcement of docket number 32357. Valerie, a successful retail buyer, rushes to take a seat along the bench we find Lois sitting on. The ominous voice that bellows from the speaker inspires a conversation between Lois and Valerie. As the two women grow more comfortable they realize their meeting is anything, but by chance. What the two women discover will change their lives moving forward. Docket 32357 examines the need to overcome loneliness even from the most unexpected of places and how we feel once that opportunity is squandered.
