Director: Thomas Bos
Garbage collector Patrick is angry and wants to smash everything. During a compulsory anger management course, he meets other incensed people and they learn to dance instead of fight. Can they transform their fury?
When Patrick, making his daily round on the garbage truck, lets a refuse bag slip from his hands, he decides to completely smash it to bits. He includes a garden fence, a Greek-Roman statue and a couple of flowerpots. Pressed by an experimental therapist, he has to find another outlet through ‘dance and movement’. He realises that people, despite their different backgrounds, are equal in their anger. And that he can use his own fury differently.
