This short film shows views of a city harbour (Sydney?) with workers constructing a bridge, seen from an elevated position. The camera pans across two men, talking on the bridge, to capture views of the landscape; showing boats, industrial structures, cranes and workers, against a backdrop of built up residential areas along the water.
