A turf war between politicians, planners, gangsters and replicants has erupted in a South London of the near future. The film constructs a visual narrative from London urbanism, interlaced with found Chinese comics, 3D animation, web browsing and shared filmic conventions, carefully weaving between each to create a fast-paced new 'episode of Columbo': "an experimental collage of live action, 3D computer animation and personal film fantasy that takes the viewer on a twisted ride through our collective cultural history.
