Brief synopsis

Die Freunde Perkus und Chase hängen wie jeden Tag in ihrem verstaubten 1-Zimmer Apartment ab und glotzen TV. Der Fernseher und Repliken der Popkultur sind ihre einzigen Verbindungen zur Außenwelt, von der sie sich abgeschottet haben. Aus Langeweile kommt’s zum Streit und Perkus entscheidet sich für einen Spaziergang durch die wirre Welt. Chase geht weiter seinem Beruf als Psychotherapeut nach und ist sich sicher, dass es draußen nichts Neues zu entdecken gibt. Perkus kehrt Heim; aber was hat er gefunden?

============

Perkus and Chase, friends for life, hang out in their 1-bedroom apartment and watch TV. Pop culture and television replicas are their only connection to the world outside that they have abandoned and declared cruel. Out of boredom they get into a fight and Perkus decides to take a walk. Questioning, wether the world really is as weird as they thought. Chase stays home, certain that there isn’t anything new and continues his job as a therapist, waiting for his friend to return. Finally Perkus comes home - what did he discover?
