Northwestern Switzerland, 1877. Josephine finds employment in a watch factory, where she produces the axis of the unrest (Unrueh), a minute piece causing the swing in the center of the mechanical watch. In the local anarchist movement, the Fédération Jurassienne, she meets Piotr Kropotkin, a moony Russian traveller. Walking through the nearby woods, they ask themselves: Aren’t time, money and the government all but fictions?
