Wexford Plaza is a slice-of-life dark comedy about a lonely female security guard Betty (Reid Asselstine) who works at a dilapidated strip mall. Isolated and friendless, a glimmer of hope appears when a charming bartender, Danny (Darrel Gamotin), shows Betty kindness, leading to an unexpected sexual encounter. Although Betty and her deadbeat paramour are well meaning in their intentions, their behaviour ends up causing both of their lives to unravel. Wexford Plaza is about two losers who are earnestly trying to improve their condition, but ultimately become deluded by their dreams.
