Dance film about the social conventions we impose on ourselves and the effort it may require to keep to them. The patrons of a restaurant are fully focussed on each other. At least, so it seems.

In a large restaurant, the sociably chatting patrons are fully focussed on each other. At least, so it seems. Eight dancers blatantly accept their lack of interest and let themselves be side-tracked. Dance film about the social conventions we impose on ourselves and the effort it sometimes requires to keep to them.
