Synopsis:  Sitting Ducks on the Sitting Dock follows Louis and Ricky, two dead dock workers who’ve never known anything besides their responsibilities on The Sitting Dock. They repair the dock, they pick up dead ducks, and they call it a day. It’s a consistent routine, and they love it. But, when Ricky begins having epiphanies out of nowhere, he grows increasingly doubtful about various aspects of his life, including the very fabric of his existence. Meanwhile, Louis finds his dedication to the dock stronger than ever. However, this dedication may prove to be the downfall of the life the dock workers once knew. With an impending visit from Sir, the owner of the dock, expectations collide with reality, and chaos concerning the nature of their world ensues.
