An experimental music work made for television. Follows a day in the life of a young composer and her daughter. Chance events influence her musical activities, and these in turn inform her choice of numbers for her National Lottery entry. The winning numbers, she reasons, will also be a winning melody. "The film is without dialogue, while the strong jazz score incorporates sounds from the environment, including a mechanical toy frog and a hail of frozen peas."
