Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, only altered in form or transferred from one system to another.
A nuclear power plant worker obsessed with counting has set a maximum limit on how much electricity he wants to consume. The energy that should have lasted him for the rest of his life is slowly running out, forcing him to decide on its final use. As a result, they are faced with the decision of what to convert the remaining energy into. 3 MWh is a cinematic poem about not growing and denying anthropocentrism. 16mm analogue footage digitally damaged by recorded electrical discharges based on the protagonist's voice demonstrates the relationship between man and material reality.
