Escu works as a box assembler in a factory. From one side of the room flat cardboards are entering on a mechanized belt and with a tape-dispenser he puts them up into boxes, which then are getting out of the room through an opening in the wall on the other side of the room. The conveyor belt is jamming, so Escu waits patiently for his work schedule to be over. But boredom sets in, so Escu starts to look at the box left inside... Eventually the conveyor belt starts over and Escu’s schedule comes to an end...He needs to put the box down and go home.
