Sorry, this film is no longer available.

A street theatre of the absurd in one act. The theme is domination and mutual attraction of strength and weakness. Two old sisters sit on a bench and talk. The older sister, who is 87-years-old ("old, much too old"), tells her younger sister that throughout her life she had to be taken care of, being "such a screw-up". Now she keeps an eye on her sister, because she should walk and exercise her sick leg. And whether she likes it or not, she has to go round the yard again and again. Well, you remain the younger sister for the rest of your life...
