A group of door-to-door salesmen takes the train to a mysterious suburb. One of them suddenly finds himself in what seems to be an infinite loop, as he continuously returns to the same train station over and over again. 8:30 is a satirical gag about urban alienation, capitalism, and Google Street View, the weirdness of suburbia, and the blurring lines between reality and fiction in the digital age.
