Through the Supermarket in Five Easy Pieces
In this dance film a family tries to manage through the weekly grocery shopping without disintegrating. The moment they enter the supermarket the children go off in separate directions and the parents face the ovewhelming load of merchandise under the time pressure of a closing store. Will they be able to gather the supplies for existence and still come out of the store with all the children? The story is also a metaphor to the five classical elements earth, air, fire, water and aether, of how they strive into different directions but still keep together as one.
