A man is on his hands and knees center stage facing the audience. People pass, one by one, and take a part of his burden off of his back and place it on their own backs. When they do, they look slightly more burdened. Each time, the man rises higher and higher on his knees. At the final time, he completely raises up on his knees and puts his hands together in prayer.
