Pilates, internet dating, and fear of unemployment.

Uncertainty abounds in this biting comedy about life while working in a controversial oil and gas industry. Circle of Steel follows Wendy Fong, a young engineer just getting started in a new company when rumors of layoffs threaten her future. She fights the monotony of her wintery surroundings with Pilates workouts and internet dating, but her routine soon falls apart as the likelihood of losing her job becomes a probability. Humor with an edge lays the groundwork for a story and protagonist that mirror the all-too-relatable struggle of youth in today's climate, no matter where you live. -Nick Coleman
