    Brief synopsis

    A film in the style of an advertising spot. A scientist advocates the genetic exclusion of disability. He praises the advantages of the techniques of genetic manipulation that can prevent the birth of disabled children, whose life is apparently worthless. At the end of the film we see a woman in front of a television watching this commercial break. She is disabled herself and in a wheelchair.
