In a seven-minute sequence shot in which he smokes with obvious enjoyment, Amos Gitai explains how a television channel hired him to make a film about Marlboro. They paid him, then, after some thought, asked him to keep the money but give up the project.
This short film was made for the Quinzaine de la critique 2001, for which several filmmakers were asked to address the theme of globalisation.
