Fingers control a flip book that reveals a series of pictures. With each flashing image, spectator access is denied. People, signals of the digital age, and constructions of civilization are edited together to form a rapid firing of information. The film is reminiscent of media images injected into everyday onlookers. Short thrills are exemplified, making the flip book a series of 'cinematic attractions' -- a kind of peep show for viewers.
