A never-ending line of identical, single-unit houses next to each other, neatly separated by privet hedges – Ligustrum. This world is made for families, consisting of father, mother and child, of course. He’s got the job, she’s got the kids. That’s the way it has always been. Even when GRETA gives birth, not to a human child, but to a regular vacuum cleaner, nothing changes in this world’s beautiful order. Greta may be stunned, but everyone else is thrilled. A vacuum cleaner is very handy! And after all, motherhood is the most important thing for a woman. Plus the household. She’s expected to take care of the little machine just like a normal kid. Greta wants to fit in, to play along, but the more she tries, the more she understands the absurdity of her world, where the norms are suffocating and from which there is no way out.
