Episode from the Kort Rotterdams series of short films that was financially supported by the Rotterdam Fund for Film and AVMedia. Absurdist film, shot on the Maasvlakte. A group of elderly people lives in the isolation of an industrial, desolate environment. They lead a harmonious and sober life and take their time for everything. When a strange and hungry hiker arrives, the peace is disrupted. Only when the group manages to make him appreciate doing things slowly and being together, his hunger appears to be appeased.
