The animation explores the ideology of social progression from the perspective of someone that is financially insecure and unemployed. The story follows an unnamed jobseeker, faced with a mandatory work trial at a local fast food outlet in order to continue his entitlement to social welfare.

A dystopian nightmare unfolds as humiliation becomes a necessary experience of class progression.
