Building the Room is a documentary about a group of comedians being pushed to their limits in the hopes of mounting a unique, underground comedy show. Initially aimed at being a fun romp full of exciting promotional stunts and camaraderie, the production became a battleground between the cast and its director in a story told through the original footage and deposition footage from an ensuing civil suit. After 10 days of deepening conflict, the comedy show at the end is the only hope for a redemptive turn.
