Amy has found herself in another receptionist contract when she had vowed never to do it again. She smiles politely, makes the perfect cup of coffee and has a delightful phone manner. Her life is a rut of emails, mundane tasks and ridiculous colleagues. Until an office birthday cake leads her to question her routine and ponder the relevance of ergonomics in the workplace. Is this the beginning of her freedom or her decent into corporate oblivion? Created on the clock behind the reception desk in the tone of Bridget Jones meets The Office, 'Temporary' finds humour in the daily grind.
