Two sisters, each with their own neurotic responses to everyday life, go shopping. The sterile environment of the shopping centre quickly becomes menacing as the women’s personal safety systems begin to fail. SYSTEM explores our collective anxieties, irrational behaviour and the quest for control in public space, through the experiences of these two characters.
The fictional screenplay is loosely based on a series of one-to-one interviews conducted by Stenbom with people about everyday behaviours and habits in communal spaces.
