After being dumped by his girlfriend (Michelle Ryan), art student Ben Willis (Sean Biggerstaff) develops chronic insomnia. Finding himself with too much time on his hands, Ben begins working the night shift at the local supermarket. There Ben begins to imagine he can freeze time and uses his "ability" to undress and sketch the female customers in the nude.

Ben is occasionally distracted from his fantasy by his unconventional yet hilarious co-workers, who introduce him to their inventive antics of losing time to survive the boredom of the graveyard shift, but it is quiet check-out girl Sharon (Emilia Fox) who catches his attention and she soon becomes the object of his fantasies.

Written and directed by Sean Ellis, Cashback unveils a world where reality and fantasy blur and love and beauty are realised in the most unusual places.
