Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

An avant-garde film that may be too avant for most viewers, this 87-minute feature involves a melange of scenes straight out of the "theater of the absurd" in which the actors speak directly to the camera. A jaded film director goes routinely off to work every morning, while the aspiring actors he auditions are not always successful in their screen tests. One of these becomes the main protagonist for the film, and the oddball people he meets fill in the rest of these puzzling observances on life and human nature.
