A teenager is held in a department store security holding room by the female security guard who caught him shoplifting. As he tries to lure her into dropping the charges, they find themselves unexpectedly intertwined. When a familiar police officer arrives to discover them alone together, the tables are quickly turned.

Caught explores questions around gender politics, race, class, entitlement, blame, and consequence. It looks at how our upbringing and the opportunities we are given define who we are and our ability to thrive in the world. It focuses intensely on human interactions and the various ways we hurt both one another and ourselves
