This documentary follows the day to day of employees who are just cogs in the wheel of a large supermarket store. As their journey subverts the mundane, we learn their pains and joys, their unlikely dreams and most profound existential questionings. Pushing against the alienating universe of repetitiveness that the store creates, this film looks at the supermarket as a somehow mystical place. A philosophical investigation hides at the heart of this film: How do we negotiate the repetition that lies within so many aspects of our relationship to the material world, and the constant search for meaning in our minds and souls.

This film will only be available in Docs for Sale on November 23, after its World Premiere.
