Using a video camera, Minnette Vári films images she finds striking on television, which she then splices and incorporates in a montage that includes recordings of herself. Her purpose in creating this film is to provide a response to our visual culture, not so much in terms of its proliferation and excess, but first and foremost as a commentary on indoctrination and deception. Some of the film's sounds are from original recordings; however, dialogue from the science fiction film, Alien, has also been incorporated throughout. Her own heartbeat beats in the background, whereby Vári establishes a place uniquely her own in all that takes place.
