A mysterious film crew accompanies Mr. and Mrs. N. during their employment trial period at the chewing-gum-sorting department, where they learn that: one bowl always remains empty.
Using improvisation, this mockumentary develops its narrative through role-switching, interviews, and an abstracted world, with a view to humorously point out how nurtured principles and predisposed hierarchies present themselves as self-discipline within individuals.
