This ingenious theatrical gem unfolds amidst the commuter rush at Stratford Station. Sitting above the main concourse with your own set of headphones, you'll be wired into a secret and intensely personal drama as it unfolds somewhere in the crowd.

Gary and Steve are the kind of men who normally escape notice. But they're about to play an inadvertent but pivotal role in the day of two ambitious executives who they've arranged to meet for a transaction. As the intimacy of their situation develops, small metal objects becomes a sly and luminous depiction of an age where a person's value is determined by their productivity.
