The film shows different actors sitting at a table in the garden eating different food. The camera is static; the actors enter the frame and take turns. About the theme of the film, Ana Nuša Dragan said: I was very interested in how different people react differently, even though they are in the same room, that everything is the same. This, too, stemmed from the psychology issues I was dealing with. At the same time, I was not so much interested in gastronomy per se, but in this visuality of food that I still love to shoot today, especially close-ups, which is tricky if you don’t want to make it look awful. Therefore, I put all the performers in the same space, behind the same table, with the same items, in the same situation. Then they ate and every thirty seconds I said “Stop” and they all stopped, each in his/her own way, each with his/her own gestures and peculiarities. I found that extremely interesting, all that you can learn about a man through a camera that can be very cruel. (Source of the statement: Nil Baskar: A Conversation with Ana Nuša Dragan, KINO!
