Enjoyable...though I am a bit surprised it was nominated.
Luna works a rather boring job at a parking garage. The payments are all automated and all she does is watch the lot on her monitors as well as occasionally patrolling the lot. However, when her boss asks her to review footage from the night before, she discovers that her co-worker working the other shift is behaving very strangely as he makes his rounds and Diego inspires Luna to have an all new outlook on her job.
This is a cute but rather inconsequential film. I am not saying it's bad, but it's by far the weakest of the five nominees and won't change your life. I am actually very surprised the short was nominated. However, I also have to admit that the final line of the film is hilarious and makes it all very worthwhile.
