A negative image of a woman's head in medium close up is repeated in accompaniment to percussive music. In the last section of the film, the loop is shown in positive. Through repetition, differing nuances of emotion are emphasized by vibrant percussion music. The obsessive recurrence of the image with the change (however slight) of emphasis, is the emotional idea of the film.
