A masked, unemployed man reflects on his hopeless failure to find work and seems only to find solace in fragmented memories which struggle to assert themselves. In Work, seemingly innocuous objects and sounds- matches, pomegranates, a joke plate wobbler, flamenco dancers conspire with nervous, faltering energy to build a cine-poem around the themes of emasculation, anxiety and memory.
