About

A young woman gets the idea to make and market a punk-style aerobics tape – and does so at too great a speed to ever reflect on the ramifications of her project. She lives in New York's East Village, and just happens to walk by Stephen Spielberg's "Batteries Not Included" film set each day on her way to and from work.

The two projects are counterpointed with particular reference to the degree to which either of them pay attention to anything more than a few superficial elements of the community and cultures they purport to be representing.

The dramatic continuity of the story is frequently interrupted by a collage of images of the characters recontextualized in portrait format and overlaid with a series of onscreen texts. These images and texts serve as a Brechtian chorus, providing comment on the relationships between the marketplace, the television medium, and what an audience will easily believe.
