This film is about a plastic spoon and a society that has reached such
a level of development that it extracts petroleum from the depths of
the earth, transports it to a refinery, where it is turned into plastic, then
transports the plastic to another factory, where it takes on the form of
a spoon, then transports the spoons to all kinds of stores and eating
establishments, where the spoon’s meaningful life lasts a mere ten
minutes or so before being thrown out.
