Pete Cozy (Eric Mabius) has found himself a house in the suburbs and a job in the pricing department of a middling supermarket chain. Pete’s job allows him to spend quality time with his wife and young son and, despite the fact that they are drowning in debts, they appear happy. Everything changes when Pete gets a new boss, the beautiful, high powered, fast talking Susan Felders (Parker Posey). With Susan’s influence, Pete finds himself on the executive track.. Something that both surprises and excites him. The more his salary increases, the more he has to perform at work… and the less time he gets to spend with his family. At the same time, his relationship with his boss begins to cross the line of professional etiquette. Both become enamored with one another – creating tension in the workplace and in his personal home life.
PRICE CHECK is a smart and honest comedy that examines who we think we are and what we’re willing to do for the life we think we deserve.
