Summary: Recruiting film for the Royal Air Force, aimed at school leavers and young job seekers.
Description: Scenes of David, a young man who "[doesn't] want to be stuck in a rut" going for an interview (including shots of him riding through the streets on his bike, waiting for the interview, walking the streets, sitting bored in a cafeteria) is juxtaposed with exciting scenes of life in the RAF.
