Synopsis

Fred does not approve of this world. He loses his job at a newspaper because his review of a Terrence Malick film is filled with expletives. The editor-in-chief is furious and Fred has to flee the office before he is able to retrieve his first novel from the photocopier. Back home, his girlfriend Susanna reveals she’s pregnant. His fear of new responsibilities sinks him into a deep crisis, and a dubious offer from the editor helps Fred realize that working as a writer would mean selling his soul. He decides to try manual labour. He'll become a forklift operator. At least it's a meaningful job...
