In Search of Receptionists of the Genetic Salon

An unemployed gambler (played by Helene Bergsholm) quitting her addiction in a bar in Oslo Norway. The story  is about how she won and lost in countless games in the dancing machine. When she won the game, she accidentally entered the Genetic Salon - a beauty company that offers high-quality genetic modifications for their customers.

The story follows one receptionist working in a future genetic engineering salon: Genetic Salon. One of them is suspected of selling customers who suffered memory loss after using the genetic beauty services to black market butchers.

在挪威奧斯陸一家酒吧裏,一位失業的賭徒(Helene Bergsholm飾)嘗試戒掉賭癮。 故事講述了她在跳舞機裡無數場比賽中如何輸贏的故事。 當她贏得比賽時,她意外地進入了基因髮廊——一家為顧客提供高質量基因改造的美容公司。而在基因髮廊工作的其中一個接待員的故事涉嫌將使用基因美容服務後失憶的顧客賣給黑市屠夫。
