A woman sitting on a couch is focusing her iron view into the camera when she suddenly starts to talk. Out of her comes a canny and calm monologue which manifests her thoughts and ideas. At first the independently created monologue starts to get tangled up into contradictions, torn between different views and ideologies. It comes from phrases in different commercials which were combined into a continuously ongoing monologue which turns out to be commanded and alienated by advertisement.
