Our society is a work society. From childhood we are taught to be result oriented and competitive. As automation and artificial intelligence exceed human capacity, we will be forced to rethink the role work plays in our lives: the majority of jobs that exist today could vanish in a few decades. The debate about the consequences of this has been dominated by technology experts and economists and often painted as a sci-fi dystopia. What is absent is the human perspective, a look at what this will mean to us as human beings. With characters and narratives across four continents, the film seeks an existential answer to what work means today, what things could be like in the future and what will happen to us when we don’t work.
