François works at night and loves Anne, who works during the day. This results in them never seeing one another. One morning, he sees her leaving her house with an airline-pilot. In the afternoon, instead of sleeping, he wanders the streets and recognises the pilot with another woman.
Patrick Keiller's first film, Stonebridge Park, was prompted by the length and articulation of a footbridge over a major road junction in northwest London, and comprises moving-camera footage accompanied by a fictional narration written later. It's a film in two parts.
