Purpose

Logline: A hardworking janitor encounters life and results to his most powerless state and loses his purpose and a toilet's.

Synopsis:
A janitor did his job thoroughly. In a place where he spends almost an hour or two of his working hours: he wets, scrubs, brushes, and flushes. The dirt never bothered him as it was his job and his source of living.

The contaminated pee, chunks of foul feces, mouthful of vomit, used condom, cigarette from a dying chain-smoker, a ring of a dysfunctional marriage. He cleans until he encounters a life that is now helpless.

He lost sight of his purpose as a janitor and a human; at the same time, the purpose of a mere toilet was defaced.

Brief Synopsis:
Silbi (Purpose) is an experimental film that shows the perspective of a cleaner/janitor facing someone else's waste. It also presents the different acts of people inside a restroom, and how they see the purpose of a toilet.
