Thomas, a graduate in his thirties, is looking for a job at the unemployment office. However, the waiting time spirals to absurd heights and seems to have no end. He is forced to choose between an infinite queue of job-seekers or joining the so-called "2nd Congress of Labor of Tomorrow". He decides on the latter and follows a mysterious telephone wire hoping to finally reach the job advisor. Instead, he meets many self-employed people with odd jobs. To find his place in this dystopian society, Thomas is forced to come up with something extraordinary.
