Sinfonie der Dumpfbacken

A Film by Volker Heymann

Synopsis

An emergency meeting of the sales representatives of a medium-sized company. Sales are dropping, a new strategy must be found! The current product, a bobbledhead dog, seems to be eliciting the same response from the uninspired group of salesmen toward the new plan of action.
