Synopsis: Diego works as a dishwasher at The Alameda Grill. When a line cook doesn’t show up for work just before a busy Friday night dinner service, Diego is given a chance to step up and take his place. However, there’s a catch: he must also continue to tend to his duties as a dishwasher, all in hopes of getting home on time to see his daughter. Between his new position on salad station, his old position in the dish pit, and his daughter at home, he quickly realizes he may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Director's Statement

Six Nights was completed as part of the Production III class at the Colorado Film School. My own work experiences in a kitchen, as well as difficulties balancing personal and professional life, were critical elements to the creation of this film. A very early draft of the script featured a large ensemble cast, but during the writing process I kept finding myself so drawn to the dishwasher trying to get home to his daughter, and before long I realized the film was truly his. I was eager to tell the story of a character that’s usually in the background instead of front and center. Despite Diego’s ambition to better himself and his situation, his agency still feels limited, which is a relatable experience to many people.
