A publicity film produced by the Institute for Work Productivity aimed at encouraging workers to undergo career retraining. The film presents two neighbors: a clerk named Mr. Katz, and a factory worker named Mr. Luria. Both workers enjoy the stability of a permanent workplace but are bored with their daily routine. Luria searches for different employment and finds an interesting new job. He encourages Katz to do the same. Katz visits a government career consultant, enlists in a course, and finds an interesting new job as well. The film describes the protagonists’ feelings and decision making process using humor, including a homage to Charlie Chaplin’s film “Modern Times”.
