An all-female government meets in a windowless room at the round table. The Doomsday Clock shows two minutes to midnight. An enemy autocrat has already announced the nuclear strike. In Yael Bartana's film, five actresses portray the president and her ministers, who once set out to create a more peaceful world. At the same table are experts who are scientists, politicians and activists also in real life. How can they prevent the catastrophe? Do they have to radically break the male logic or do they have to follow it at least in parts? The longer the conversation goes on, the more complex the situation becomes. The solution could be so simple, but who takes the first step?
