This short film illustrates everyone's struggle to live. People in close ranks elbow their neighbours so as to rise on the social ladder. Each one gives a poke to his neighbour which is amplified as it is passed long. The first, in the most envied place, unable to resist the final shock, is then eliminated.
But there's a spoilsport who upsets the natural order of things by refusing to conform and is able to escape the effects of being elbowed, and the game begins again at the other end.
