A young labourer backs into a parked car. Two international students watch a group of kids make a small bomb. And a man attempts to dump a load of rubbish on the side of the road. Three Stories Inside A Rental Van presents three vignettes, each set inside the same rental van, and each exploring the morality of the different characters who hire it. Each story is filmed in a single shot, without edit points and the camera never leaves the interior of the van.
