Sites of Sites. A tragicomedy about an artificial paradise

Artificial beaches are being built somewhere in the Caribbean.

A young model expects some friends by the pool, a gardener and a maid fancy about buying expensive furniture, a group of street-sweepers philosophize about love and some amateur golfers try to enter the ball in the hole, while tourists, between noise and machines, go for a little walk.
