Using unconventional documentary techniques, this film employs three real-life temporary workers to work temporarily in an abandoned factory, which becomes a stage for playing out an intangible and makeshift family drama. The relationships between these temporary workers reflect their existence in the margins and wilderness of the city.

Artist’s Statement

Using an abandoned factory, temporary workers and help-wanted notices on walls, this film reflects on the realities of life for the working class. After they have served their purposes, such workers are tossed away among the empty and derelict margins of the city, relics of modern-day industrialisation.
