Alexander Dworsky leads a very orderly life. He's succeeded in his professional career and family life, everything seems to be running smoothly in his world dedicated to success, profitability and productivity. But one day Alexander begins to have doubts...

It took Austrian Ruth Mader 14 years to complete her second feature film after the surprising Struggle. A change of course with this sci-fi thriller that, akin to the Black Mirror series, explores the dangers of our social habits through excess and absurdity. A criticism of the ills of hypercapitalism, reminiscent of the genre's classics like Brazil or Welcome to Gattaca.
