This sar­cas­tic ethno­graph­ic film reflects the image of eating mankind. We are pass­ing the eighth part of every day having a meal. The rhythm of ali­men­ta­tion at Brus­sels. A wed­ding ban­quet and a funer­al meal. The feasts of Christ­mas and the New Year. Lone­li­ness and coming togeth­er. Pover­ty and pros­per­i­ty. In a cer­tain way this film is a por­tray­al of Belgium.
