An undertaker finds an invitation to a private showing of a movie stuck in his apartment door. Upon arrival at the theater, he discovers that there's only one other person in the audience, and when the "movie" turns out to be footage of him sitting in a park calmly eating his lunch, he becomes convinced that he's an unwitting participant in a sinister reality show, whose unseen cameras are determined to humiliate him in front of thousands of people. Certain that he's being filmed at every moment, he begins a bizarre odyssey through the dark and empty streets of his city, encountering increasingly absurd situations, becoming ever more paranoid and distrustful, and waiting for the opportunity to stage a rebellion against his hidden tormentors.
