SUPPORTING FILM to: Ulrich Tukur - Life of a Showman 

Between love and »storage capacity«: Karoline Eichhorn’s first short as director is a comedy about the unavoidable in a society based on having a job and earning money. A weekend in Denmark. Dina (Catrin Striebeck) has got the day off and Mr. Jones (Jonas Landerschier) in the holiday house next door has set up his keyboard on the terrace. The day would be just fine – if it wasn’t for Ed (Stephan Schad), Dina’s husband, pacing up and down with his phone to his ear because there are problems with “storage capacity” in his company and he as head of department has to tell everyone what to do. His main target is Danish zero-hours contractor Donny (Arne Nielsen) – and of course Dina, who is increasingly attracted by Mr. Jones’ melodies.
