Absurdist, musical film about two contract killers waiting for a job, meanwhile killing time by listening to Bach.

Two contract killers waiting for a job kill their time, doubts and nerves by listening to classical music and exchanging facts about composers. They are instructed by telephone to kill someone. After the liquidation, doubt again takes possession of them: have they eliminated the right guy?
