Starring Rob James-Collier (Downton Abbey) and Isy Suttie (Peep Show), The Attendant tells the story of Alex, a hapless and hopeless romantic, who has worked the graveyard shift of an isolated petrol station longer than he cares to remember.

The time spent on his own, fighting against boredom, has forced Alex to seek out new and increasingly elaborate ways of entertaining himself; all the while longing for just one, meaningful, human interaction.

In the early hours, as Alex readies himself to embark on another flight of fancy, a customer appears at the window who might just change his life forever.
