“Selbstgespräche” (“Soliloquies”) is a comedy about speechlessness in which people talk non-stop. The film focuses on four call centre employees who talk constantly because of their jobs, but all have major problems communicating on a personal level. In four interconnecting episodes, we follow our protagonists and their amusing attempts to find their place in life. At the same time, they are trying to save “their” call centre, as if the sales volume doesn’t drastically increasing in four weeks, the centre will be shut down…
