Synopsis
 

The delivery man drives around the city rings the whole day and delivers. During the work he’ll hit “everything” from the birth to the death, and some gray surprises around modern city…
The unpleasant, vital processes of a city organism, such as power production, food supplying, logistics, “discharge industry” and other maintenance systems have been erased from the city centres to a “grey zone” into the suburban areas and around the ring roads. That way, the centres become clean and business and entertainment, culture and pleasant atmosphere can be invested in. The sites of the basic functions, excluded from the city centre, are a prerequisite for the very existence of the centre.
