The film foregrounds the unprecedented volume of labour-intensive digital service industries. It features an Induction Day expert, one who inducts and trains hundreds of workers every month. He profiles their personalities, engages them with attention techniques and verifies their background for the company. His whirling, twisting, gambolling body is seen alongside the architecture of dreams he inhabits, one that spirals and gyrates as he swivels and turns. The building and body sometimes seem engaged in a pas de deux, at other times appear as witnesses of each other, till exhaustion interrupts and brings them to a grinding halt.
