Victor Laszlo, data collector and poet, comes to the island for the purposes of collecting information for the National Census and is teamed with Rick Blaine who unwillingly shows Laszlo around. Blaine works in the local bookshop and is a disillusioned and sarcastic anarchist who reluctantly becomes involved in the Victor Laszlo’s research. As Laszlo's data collection project becomes abstracted by her poetic imagination, borrowed from Charles Olson’s Maximus poems, the story expands into a recondite analysis of ownership and bureaucracy and the frustration that is born upon the psyche by these civic relations.

The non-linear form of O.K. Rick is organised in sections such as: Measuring; Rick Blaine and the Free-Winged Eagle; Against Something Abstract; Victor Laszlo's Poetry; and A Feeling in the Water. The protagonists are embedded in the story between a mixture of semi-improvised action, intensely scripted sections and real interviews. There is an incongruous juxtaposition of mood and genre that have been exploited in the semblance of the film, emphasised by an original score by Dick 50 which casts a surreal light onto these women's endeavours on the island.
