Título: Balance

Resumo: Five characters stand on a floating platform, keeping it in perfect balance with their own weight. When they pull a mysterious, desirable coffer into the platform, they start to feel possessiveness, egoism and envy, and the balance is endangered.

What does it mean to be together or to share a territory?
What does it mean to have a common?
Balance is always a disequilibrium, is to be on a constant move, where there is no place for selfish humanities.

(Sebastian Wiedemann)
