An individual is working happily by himself when he is increasingly interrupted by proliferating bureaucracy that eventually totally thwarts his capacity to work. This animated cartoon is an illustration of any activity that loses its originality or purpose when support services and administration become an end in themselves. An entertainment on a universal theme.
