In a spare bedroom now converted into an office, 23 miles from company headquarters, an executive seeks business as usual against a whole new set of challenges while competing with teenagers for bandwidth, and the family’s beagle who feels the need to chime in during the 9:00 AM staff meeting.
At that moment, in an otherwise quiet corner of their lab, a team of audio engineers run a final series of tests that could forever improve the experience of working from home.
In an operating room deep within a downtown hospital, a patient counts backwards from 100 as a small surgical team prepares a life changing procedure. Three states away, a hardware engineer calls it a day. On her way home, she passes a hospital wondering, for a moment, what her day’s work might do to change lives inside.
