This film is a glamourous praise to the recycling process and the cycle of life. It takes place at a Scrap yard. Reflections in the metal dance around and tell us that there is a second life ahead for the hard bent material.

Absurd, full of subtle humour and beautiful images from the scrap yard, we see the workers and the dancers co-starring in this Scrap cabaret. Small scrap babies are born, getting older and later reach full bloom as a scrap queen.

The music is composed from sounds recorded at the scrap yard.
