Vienna, 1st district, Werdertorgasse, in the heart of the former textile quarter: Maria Knoth, who came to Vienna from Prague in 1969 and has been employed by the Stastny company for decades, is cleaning up. She measures bales of fabric, sorts them - viscose, linen, finest cotton - and at the same time she tells about the business and its decline. A witty, empathetic obituary of a sunken world. (Shown as the supporting film to "The Melancholy of Millionaires")
