11 min, Germany. A mysterious film-team accompanies Mr. and Mrs. N. during their employment trial-period at the chewing-gum-sorting-department, where they learn that: one bowl always remains empty.
Two actors in four roles play and reflect upon the underlying focus of the film, namely: routine. In the process of modernity, people are involved less as individuals in conflicts, and more as representatives of a system. Using improvisation, this experimental mockumentary develops its narrative through role-switching, interviews and an abstracted world in order to humorously point out how nurtured principles and predisposed hierarchies present themselves as self-discipline within individuals.
