A sunny saturday afternoon in Zurich.
In the middle of a busy square a businessman lies on a bench, apparently asleep. In a bus a teenager thirsts for approval. A commuter fights with a ticket machine.
The film shows ten situations of the everyday life in the city as static tableaus. The people see themselves confronted with bigger and smaller problems, everyone of them a Sisyphus, rolling the small rocks of everyday life up the hill.
