Philip plays an old employee in a theater where there will be a major international conference. While preparing the stage for this event, despite many blunders and incidents of all kinds, he is constantly distracted from his task, attracted by the only thing that interests him: playing. Playing in a theater, playing at beeing a guest speaker, playing with a diabolo, playing the video producer; for the fun of playing.
Will someone finally discover his many talents ? Hopefully!
