Short highly stylised film about a contro­ver­sial loca­tion. Mainly shot at night in an obser­vant style, the film shows the highs and lows of shop­ping mall Hoog Cathar­ijne and the adja­cent train station area. The concrete jungle with deso­late nooks, tunnels and arcades seems to lead its own life under the pulsating neon light. Grad­u­ally, the constructed surround­ings emerge as a versa­tile, battered organism, used in a contin­uous, contrasting and bizarre way by junks and cleaners, trav­ellers and shoppers.
