      With the fee he gets from the insurance for the accident he travels to London where we finds a new job, new work and many troubles.
      Simon is English and 40. Very reserved and handsome, a monitoring officer for the closed circuit surveillance cameras of the centre of London.
      Simon meets Iran dressed as Irene on a night out. After rejecting Irene after discovering her secret he develops an obsession watching her on the CCTV cameras.
      In the journey to change her identity, becoming an actress and gain her independency as a resident Iran ends up meeting a group of actors that create performances especially to the CCTV cameras of London.
      Discovered by the police Iran is deported but at that time he had already acquired a fake passport which permits him to come back to London.
      Through the CCTV of Heathrow Airport we see the passengers arriving in London. One of the security guards monitoring the cameras notices the beauty of one of the passengers. It’s Irene more feminine than ever. Looking at her through the cameras he sees her entering the country presenting a Portuguese passport. The immigration official stamps her passport and Irene reenters the United Kingdom.
      Simon will meet her again through the CCTV camera images.
