Expired is a 2008 romantic comedy about Claire Barney (Samantha Morton), a mild-mannered parking enforcement officer in the City of Los Angeles. Claire lives a sheltered life caring for her elderly mother Mrs. Barney (Teri Garr) until she meets Jay Caswell (Jason Patric) a fellow meter reader who loves his job, finding handing out parking tickets to be the perfect outlet for his festering anger. The story follows these two lonely and desperate bylaw officers as they spend their days dealing with frustrated drivers who pepper Claire and Jay with threats and insults. The relationship between these two parking officers develops into a tumultuous romance full of conflict between the meek and compassionate Claire, and the aggressive, sarcastic and angry Jay. Their dark and unconventional interactions lead to many bizarre situations both on and off the streets. Claire is left conflicted between the safety of her old life and the danger and excitement of her new and unlikely romance.
