A young clerk becomes a victim of boredom and quits his job. While his mother and family believe he is headed for insanity, he finds time to enjoy life away from the pressures of work and social responsibilities. Nestor (Norman Briski) makes good use of his idle time by reflecting on his life and future. His wife leaves him and his mother becomes increasingly worried, but Nestor takes the time necessary to recharge and contemplate his future. Soon he is ready to consider returning to the working life that had once been so depressing in this comedic social satire from the play by Ricardo Talesnik.
