A Bavarian master instrument maker has to hire an immigrant Iranian master in his workshop to save himself from bankruptcy. The two master carpenters, both specializing in building chopping boards, have to overcome their cultural differences and language barrier to complete a crucial order that could potentially save their joinery. We see two worlds collide and observe the development of the protagonists as they approach each other.

Followed by a screening of full length feature Any Day Now.
