English Description
In the middle of a spacious empty room we see a Volkswagen Golf being tested on a futuristic machine. Suddenly a screw falls on the ground followed by the sound of an alarm. The machine stops. Another machine slides into the room. While the Golf is lifted up the new machine replaces the old one. Then the Golf is lifted down again and the test proceeds. An engineer brings the old machine to a kind of “machine cemetery”. And we see: It's not the first one that lost the fight against the Golf.
