Synopsis

A documentary about grand utopian dreams and stark concrete realities. The challenging, funny and sometimes tragic story of the British new town of Basildon, Essex.
An audiovisual journey through populated ruins, guided by the artists, musicians and poets of Basildon. Facing austerity, adversity and personal battles these people are driven by their creative spirit to help their community through art, poetry, music… and some rather angry puppets.
