At the beginning I wanted to do a remake of Fassbinder´s "Acht Stunden sind kein Tag", from the 70´ies, but half way through - Nikolai Lie Kaas (the male head character) becomes ill. Then Steen Møller Rasmussen suggests that we use Claus Carstensen and makes the action take place in an ice cream shop.

Unfortunately there has just been a power cut, so all the ice cream is melted, which makes a terrible mess. Now the film is cut down to 55 seconds and consists of associations from "Angst essen Seele auf", another film by Fassbinder.
