Modern ideas of progress rest upon a body of labour, of repetitive, invisible, and often unacknowledged intense effort. our brief eternity pays tribute to this effort by presenting situations of purposefulness, care, collective responsibility and the effect of ever expanding promises of fulfillment through acquisition and accumulation. This film is an adaption of the stage work of the same name.
