Madrid. Thousands of people are demonstrating at a protest rally against the International Monetary Fund. Amidst this tense atmosphere, interviews are being held in the skyscraper of a supranational financial corporation for a high managerial position. Seven candidates are going through the selection process which involves the application of the so-called Gronholm method of elimination, based on psychological tests, which German army officers had to go through after the 1st World War. Now the method has been adopted by big business. After conquering a senseless bureaucratic labyrinth, the candidates must then undergo a test whose principle is founded on a cunning drama of mutual suspicion, character-bashing, the forming of alliances, humiliating manipulation, and buck-passing, with the comforting reassurance that “no-one is forcing you to do this”. Some of the candidates would rather be outside in the street with the demonstrators, but haven’t the nerve to admit it.
