Children start to demolish a small shabby car. Neighbours watch the scene from their windows and even film it through the curtains. The film provides a clear and relevant picture on daily life in a british suburb. By a fine line between reality and its display in the subtly arranged movements the film takes a perspektive between reportage and social voyeurism. The work takes on the idea of „them and us” and shows how social connections, family and community ethics are constructed.
