Short slapstick. Working high up the façade of an office building, a burly painter struggles with a diet of yoghurt and carrots, and a steaming hotdog at the other side of the windowpane. When he discovers one window is open, he cannot stand the temptation. Jack Wouterse plays the painter who with each setback becomes more determined to obtain the hotdog. The film was commissioned by Arbouw and serves as a starting point for a discussion about nutrition and eating habits.
