    Brief synopsis

    39-year-old Alice is out of luck. She keeps her head above water with odd jobs and gas vouchers. When she tries maintaining the appearance of being a successful freelancer in front of her friends and colleagues things get more and more absurd. The Chairs Game is an allegory of our performance-oriented society where everyone gets tangled up in a web of lies merely to conform to the system.
