Documentary filmmaker Lonny Goosen is mad as hell. He's just had his car towed again! With nearly $3,000 in outstanding tickets, he decides enough is enough and sets out to film a scathing expose of the corrupt institution of parking enforcement. With the camera rolling, Lonny has no trouble finding people that are only too happy to vent their anger towards "the system." But not surprisingly, the parking enforcers themselves don't want to talk to him.
That is, until he stumbles upon Grant Parker, a parking enforcer who, despite constant abuse from the public, finds truth, horror and serenity in the act of ticketing. Grant's religious devotion to the work is challenged however when his best friend and personal mentor, Murray Schwartz, is run down by an irate motorist and knocked into a deep coma.
Grant and Lonny begin digging into Murray's past, and soon discover that the legendary "Guru of Parking" may have been having a crisis of faith. The Delicate Art of Parking is a poignant portrait of an altruistic enforcer who learns that it's not what you do that's important, but how you do it that truly matters.
