Germany | 2011

Synopsis
All his life Wilfried Schurback sold umbrellas. Day in, day out for thirty years he crouched down in his half basement shop until no customers showed up anymore. In his words he never digitalised. After closure of his business and forcing himself to do, he applied for unemployment benefits.

The Jobcentre send him on to a job coaching. He passes through a row of seminaries: motivation training, Excel, Word but also Yoga and recreational group activities. Herr Schurback is passed through the complete system for people over 50 / 60 years. Upon completion of his job application profile and not even receiving any replies, whether positive or negative, Herr Schurback get’s to know the secondary labour market. He is given a so-called “One Euro” job.

End of the line as warehouseman; portrait of a failed entrepreneur.
