Wow, powerful.

I really liked the many, many adolescent scenes.

Poor guy.

Also I really thought it would end where he retires, then starts watering his plants, then just after finally retiring...

I forwarded the clip to my mother, who hunkered down in a bureaucratic government job and retired 5 years early. Near the end it was a struggle just to show up, she was so burned out. But now she composes music and volunteers. She totally "gets it".

What's poignant about the video is - people really do LIVE like this, and feel trapped by the system.

Wow. Pretty bleak, but powerful motivation indeed.

Thanks for sharing.
