Man of the Hour explores a society living for momentary fame and instant impact, seeking sparks of memories in order to define their personal identity during an infinite journey from weep toward peacefulness.

During one hour, the spectators are given to extreme situations on the stage through which the dancers gradually transform during powerful alienating group parts that develop into more intimate gentle duets, emphasizing a contrast between rudeness and softness.
