five people living within the centre of a city, whose lives never touch.
The film was commissioned by SBS Television as part of a series of half-hour documentaries by new documentary filmmakers around Australia, one from each state or territory.
Each project bore the name and number of the postcode district it documents. The film was selected as the NSW funded project.
It features diverse characters, from a family who've lived in the oldest part of Sydney for generations, to recent immigrants from Asia and from war-torn Bosnia, and a successful British creative director, all of whom live in the same small geographical area but whose lives are unknown to each other.
