Blumfeld is used to being alone. But out of nowhere, two visitors arrive in his apartment: bouncing ping-pong balls that start to follow him. He tries to get rid of them and hides them like a stigma from his maid. But another challenge awaits him at the office: the interns are more interested in a broom than in their work. Based on a story by Franz Kafka.
