Synopsis

Man and gravity: A classical tragedy. The individual's struggle with his self and the overwhelmingly complex structure of the universe. A stewardess, an excavacator driver, a furniture salesman and a millionaire speak about one object that they dedicate themselves to with passion. They demonstrate which precautions they take so that the events of life don't turn into accidents. Seat bags, remote controls, copy enlargements and a grave for a million. They all carry the treacheries of the universe
