Van is a maintenance man on an oil rig in Texas. Danilo is the chief engineer of a freighter, spending his days in the heart of the vessel, where a humongous engine resides. Andrea is a scientist who lives in the world of mathematical formulae, and the silence of an anechoic chamber. Vito is in charge of an immense reinforced concrete pit for waste. These people comprise the sequence of creation, transport, marketing and destruction of the objects that feed our bulimic lifestyle. The objects we think we need begin and end their journey inside isolated and eerie industrial and scientific locations. They are an ordinary couple in their forties, spending their life accumulating things to the point of saturation. Today they are looking for a way out. They are us.
