Have you have ever driven around in circles desperately searching for a parking space only to return to a parking ticket mere minutes after the meter expired? If so, we have the film for you.

Documentary filmmaker Lonny Goosen just had his car towed again! With nearly $3,000 in outstanding tickets, he decides to film a scathing expose of the corrupt institution of parking enforcement. With the camera rolling, Lonny has no trouble finding people that are only too happy to vent their anger towards “the system”. But not surprisingly, the parking enforcers themselves don’t want to talk to him until he stumbles upon Grant Parker.

Grant is a parking enforcer who, despite constant abuse from the public, finds truth, honor and serenity in the act of ticketing. Grant’s religious devotion to the work is challenged however, when his best friend and personal mentor, Murray Schwartz, is run down by an irate motorist and knocked into a deep coma.

Grant and Lonny begin digging into Murray’s past, and soon discover that the legendary ‘Guru of Parking’ may have been having a crisis of faith. It’s not what you do that’s important, but how you do it that truly matters.
