An uncommonly dark and comic take on the commonplace.

The film portrays the daily life of a woman who does everything by the booklet. For her own safety and that of those around her, she acts only on explicit instructions as found in user manuals for the devices and appliances that surround her. Though explicitly dealing with the most mundane of activities, the script reveals the absurdity and incoherence of our deepest beliefs and desires.
