Anne gives birth to her third child. Akira learns reading and writing while foraging for scrap metal and coal. Eddie entertains himself to sleep with a broken TV before another night shift work at the port. Emelita prays over the funeral of her husband. Around them and their days, the global port is expanding to their living spaces. Anne's midwife, Paning, brings the news. The result is a filmic symphony of increasing everyday violence preceding the construction of today’s ideal city.
