The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Ingbert Socke (his name is quite telling), makes his first excursion into the human world. He takes part in a tryout for the position of double bass player in the Viennese Staatskapelle. Although his performance is received enthusiastically, the selection committee still has something against him. But what could it be? A finely made, clever little film.
