A satirical take on "free" elections: via a notice hung on the wall the house administration issues a call to take part in a vote to determine the next concierge. A young resident, his leg in a plaster cast and thus dependent on crutches, sets off in search of the elusive election office.
His journey takes him through a labyrinth of dusty and cluttered archive rooms. When he finally reaches his goal matters take an unexpected turn: in the midst of documents, potted plants and sandwiches an official provides a monotonous explanation of the absurd voting procedure.
How are elections conducted in authoritarian systems in which there is no vote, since there is no choice? A sarcastic take on a state of affairs that will bring forth memories for some, and in particular those with firsthand experience of the GDR. MM
