Locked into a transparent cube that contains nothing but a fridge and a few angular objects, a skinny woman is confronted with an enemy: the soft, undefined form. It arrives in the shape of a chicken egg that the woman is supposed to eat, because that’s what her diet plan which commands her to gain weight says. The egg provokes desire and panic at the same time. Eating it is nothing less than the worst case scenario.
