Plot Summary

Collective film comprised of nine stories taking place in and around underground transportation in London, all based on true facts submitted by readers of "Time Out" magazine: in "Mr. Cool" (Jenkins) a young female worker is courted by a colleague who travels by subway and an executive with his own car; in "Horny" (Hopkins), a girl gets sexually aroused every time she takes the subterranean; in "Grasshopper" (Huda), youngsters, police inspectors and drug pushers get mixed up in the subway; in "My Father the Liar" (Hoskins), a little boy takes the train with his father and witness an unexpected incident; in "Bone" (McGregor), a musician is in search of his Muse in the train cars; in "Mouth" (Iannucci), an attractive female passenger rides a noisy train compartment, as she gets sick; in "A Bird in the Hand" (Law), an old man experiences a sense of freedom helping a trapped bird; in "Rosebud" (Dellal), a mother desperately looks for her little daughter, while the girl has a good time; and in "Steal Away" (McDougall), two men steal a briefcase with money, but a ride in the subterranean makes them change their minds.
