Cinema lost its magic, contemporary art provokes spiteful grins, altruistic enthusiasm was replaced by grant addiction, and theatre has become a cynical temple of vanity. Dear Aristotle, Tarkovsky and Rembrandt, we are sorry, but the ХХІst century will be remembered as an epoque of memes and GIFs, and the ironic section “Art Sucks!” doesn’t leave any hope for renaissance of humanity.

For sixteen years Iris Kadosh has been the keeper of the museum’s exhibits, with much dedication and no complaints. One day she arrives to work to find out that the museum’s operational manager has left and she will be taking her place. The good news is tainted by Iris’ involvement in an accident, one that causes the museum to shut down and brings about an investigation. Iris must work her way through the ever growing anxiety she feels and the colorful and crude ensemble of workers that hover around her. She must face dark questions on ethics, good vs. bad, and decide how far she will go in order to keep the great position she was offered just that morning. The tragic and amusing dynamics between the museum’s employees creates an opera of marginal and rejected characters searching for any shred of respect from the world.
