    Christian, a divorced but devoted father of two, is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum. His next show is “The Square,” an installation which invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible human beings. But Christian’s foolish response to the theft of his phone drags him into shameful situations. Meanwhile, the museum's PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for ”The Square.” The response sends Christian into an intellectual crisis.
