Gleda u nebo koje se često mijenja u Glazgovu: u centru grada viktorijanske zgrade stoje u mreži ulicakoje su pune automobilima i autobusima. Prema periferiji najviše ima nebodera; kule blokova stoje u stalnoj buci gradskog autoputa M8. Nekada su ovi neboderi bili ultra moderni i popularni ali u međuvremenu su postali zanemareni i stari, djelomično napušteni a mnogi od njih su i srušeni. Neki bivši stanovnici uljepšali su “njihove" dobro očuvane nebodere dok drugi ne žele više ni da ih vide i preferiraju sada male porodične kuće. Video se završava “vraćanjem nebodera u život “: najviša tačka u promjeni načina urbanog života.  

Gazes into the often changing sky of Glasgow: In the city centre victorian buildings stand in a grid of streets filled with cars and buses. Towards the periphery high-rises are dominating the landscape; thetower blocks stand in the never ending noise of the urban motorway M8. Once these high-rises were ultra-modern and popular but meanwhile they are old and neglected partially abandoned and many of them are being demolished. Some former inhabitants romanticise "their" good high-rises others don't want to see them anymore and prefer little family homes. The video ends with an ascension of high-rises: an apotheosis of changing ways of urban life.
