A bitter comedy about a “mystery shopper” – a person hired by companies to check the quality of work performed by their employees. A sort of “inspector” who impersonates ordinary clients of restaurants, banks, shops, service points or dance schools. His mission is clear: to verify whether employees provide quality service and have an appropriate attitude towards the customer. But the method is morally questionable, because it is based on provocation, lies, misinformation, and finding and exploiting weaknesses in the employee being evaluated.
