Louis Falco's company and young Harvard Summer School dancers perform a work in an abandoned Watertown arsenal. The piece presents images of class struggle, with Falco's dancers portraying a privileged elite and the Harvard students representing the workers.

Falco's dancers are in tuxedos and the young students wear gray and white sweat clothes.
