A journey through London’s concrete jungles. Gentrification and social cleansing are creating a vacuum and peripheral regions in which pressure and tension are growing steadily. A woman’s voice reflects upon social and urban developments: »The city stinks, it’s full of dead culture … Listen to plants … Let’s get rid of the ghetto.«
