Cleaning Out

Cleaning Out

When it’s Mrs. Farber’s turn to clean the stairs and the entrance hall of the old apartment building where everyone leaves his filth, she does nothing halfway: she scrubs the steps, polishes the window panes and waters the building’s only flower. But everyone develops a latent aggressiveness towards her that goes beyond the limits. Mrs. Farber who is a patient (she works on large complicated puzzles) and moderate (her pet is a wise turtle) woman now flies off the handle and stages a devastating outrage against her neighbours. A punctilious description of community life in an apartment building.
