A single-frame time-lapse journey through Sydney, the surrealistic city. Figures dart in and out of the shadows of the night. A kaleidoscope of imagery flies by - incorporates people in subways, cars on freeways, city streets and buildings. The music (by Fad Gadget) drives the images to a tumultuous climax.
