The remains of the party lie in the empty space, in the middle of it the actress Susanne Lipinski together with her "Personal Assistant" Sara at the smartphone. Party off, lights on. Thus begins a fast-paced spectacle, from dirty work to a time travel of cleaning and lots of can trash.
A panopticon of society emerges from the party leftovers. Absurd stories intertwine into pointed insights: WE CARE talks about the work that no one talks about: cleaning, caring, 24h and at marginal hours. A tour de force leads with pitch-black humor through cans and paper plates, sounds, smell and projections, an experience for all senses - up to the talking mop: A staccato of different times and roles, interviews with experts and affected persons, sarcastic cleaning women and dirty men.
With documentary research, Lipinski, Prlić and Zechenter illuminate the present and history of labor migration and our relationship to the order of the world. The order of things is restored by women. In the background and with poor pay.
Meet a facility manager and her cheerful voice assistant! Marvel at the test cleaning! Among the dirt of the past days, years, centuries we find modern human and slave trade, brave people, exploitative labor, documentary research, the devaluation of women, artificial intelligence and practical tips on how to make soap yourself.
