A young man meets the worn voice of a fading city under the dim lights of a London sex shop. ‘Shopping’ laments the ongoing gentrification of London’s Soho, focusing on a particular and very insular moment between two people who meet in a sex shop on a night during the run-up to christmas. ‘Shopping’ captures some of what’s now fading from the capital’s red light district, but also serves as a reminder that the warmth of a real human connection can be found in the unlikeliest of places.
