Cinema appears and disappears, sometimes flickering distantly in the landscape and sometimes in the lives of the three women who live along Film City Road. The film follows their relationshop with the idea of recreation in the city, the desire to be mobile and to have an extra sheen of pleasure in their lives. It traces the place that cinema has as a pleasure house in their lives of the three protagonists as well as what it displaces in its marginal but evocative presence.
