This gem is about how a heart broken and tortured by insomnia Ben applies for a job at the supermarket, then goes about explaining his view and experience of female beauty.
In his imagination he stops time and undress female customers to capture their beauty on paper between the pranks of his male co-workers.
Time comes to pass and the girl in the cash register is seen to grow in beauty in Ben’s eyes giving him a chance to let go of the past and move forward in life. The movie is about love, art and supermarket co-workers and shows an interesting view of time and time stopping.
The most obvious art in Cashback might be the one of drawing, capturing beauty, but the red thread in the story is the path between one lost relation and the passionate flames of new love and the feelings it conquers.
