One line synopsisOne of a series of dance pieces created specially for television: people beside a public fountain.

Fountain in public gardens. People around it, some sitting, some walking, some talking photographs, etc. Woman with umbrella and briefcase shows young punk woman photograph of the fountain as it was years ago. Woman finds coin and tosses it into the water where it joins many others on a woman’s naked back. Woman’s letter blows away; it’s retrieved by punk who makes a paper boat out of it and tosses it and another coin into the water. A hand grabs the boat from below the water. Dolphins on the fountain. Woman and punk watch feet breaking out of a metal tail. They pass around some inky water which turns into a metal fish. Woman moving in the spray. Takes water from the fountain hand. Punk walks away, passing an umbrella and briefcase on the edge of the fountain. Credits.
