Pshoutt

Fred finally makes the decision to drop off his mother's broken appliances at a recycling shop. There, he meets Joe who is running a DIY appliance repair workshop. Jo makes a big impression on Fred, to say the least. And so, from then on, Fred looks for every possible way to connect with Joe - even if it runs counter to his ecological conscience which is still very much in its infancy…
