Documentary on nature in a speaking room
In Etiquette we are searching for perfection. Though there is no sense in perfection itself, unless you are able to show it.

The viewers arrive as guests to someone’s home, but it all turns into an absurd lesson on common courtesy. Or rather a round trip in the hidden, instinctive chambers or our brains. Through lust, gobbling, stomping and duels we’ll learn the appropriate way of anxiousness, behavior, compliance – while preserving the highest degree of political correctness and politeness.

We observe the two main characters, Martin Boross and Julia Jakubowska, as if they exist inside a terrarium. We follow the instructions via headphones of a mysterious voice, who helps us become like what we wish to be seen as, by others and by ourselves – as actors, as men and women, as humans.

However, the voice often leads the potential perfect humans astray.
