In the small city of Bond-O, that sits on the peak of a mountain everyone collects into groups or packs. Some more free-form and some more constrained these packs fill the city with life. Groups move like multi-legged insects consisting of individuals staying close to each other. The Policemen all gather underneath a big police hat and the football fans are tied by their favourite teams scarf. Next to them the businessmen wear a big suit and the builders all fit in a stretched tracksuit.
