In a warehouse, artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss build a structure made from common household items. The film enlists an assortment of objects, including tires and chairs, as components in a domino-like chain reaction. Then, using fire, water, gravity, and chemistry, they create a self-destructing performance of precisely crafted chaos.
