Tokyo Uber Blues

The pandemic forces the filmmaker, a film-school graduate with a $40,000 student debt, out of a job. He decides to try his luck in Tokyo, joining the fleet of Uber Eats delivery bikers who cater to the big city in pseudo-lockdown. With just a bicycle and a smartphone, he is now able to earn whenever he likes. He’s helping people out, and it’s fun — what a game! But when he realizes the system has the upper hand, he starts to think twice about the endless deliveries of tapioca milkshakes to closed doors in high-rise condos.
