Upper and lower class, left and right, good and bad, meat and vegetables, these are simple categories from former times, heavily shaken and stirred in our complex present time. If Svenja – the main character in Café Populaire – could decide, people were able to safe the world with a bit of humour and political correct language. As many damned-to-capitalism, she tries the splits between a serious performance to the max, adapted to the system, and the reduction of her own ecological footstep to a minimum. But until now, only 8 followers are listening to her "humornistic tutorials". Should Svenja be a loser of the system? But then, she gets to know the "Don" in herself – a bad split-off that brings up her dark sides. Class society is alive!
