This short film has the year 1980 as the content. A man on his way to work. He arrives in a large office building of a computer science company and immediately begins his work. Many technical devices are used. He sits down at a computer and begins to write, probably programming. Whenever technical devices are used, the camera zooms strong closer. During the whole film a lot of noise can be heard, but no human voices. It seems to be a portrait of a computer scientist in 1980. Then we see the man going back home. There, he sits in a chair and is listening to music. In the background, but still noticeable, there is an oscilloscope. An alarm rings, the man opens his shirt and underneath appears a remote control or keyboard. He presses a button and at the same moment he falls asleep and the light goes off on the oscilloscope.
So it is not a real portrait, but it shows very clearly how this man feels, surrounded by so many technical devices. It may be seen as a critique of society or on the computer science, too.
