A woman with dark shadows under her eyes sits by her kitchen table. A fly flounders and then dies on the tablecloth. A little boy carrying groceries climbs up the stairs, dragging a man – clad in red and wearing a clown’s hat with cascabels on his head – on a chain. The woman moves potatoes from the net bag to a cooking pot, but she is apparently unsatisfied. She goes to the next room where her husband – now normally dressed – has something like a laboratory. He pushes various components into two potatoes and tries to hear something in his headphones. The woman removes the wires and takes the potatoes from the man. She writes a shopping list on a piece of paper. The household needs a fly-paper and some milk. The mother sends the little son shopping. The father again changes into the clown’s costume and the son leads him to a market on the chain. There, the man loudly rattles the cascabels and people from the crowd throw them money. The son ties his father in an arbour like a dog and sets off among the sales booths. The film has no dialogue, it is only accompanied by strongly overdesigned sounds.
