Synopsis

The rhythms and patterns of military drill create a dance for the camera. Set against the horizon of Salisbury Plain, a regiment of soldiers repeat their curious ritual in a bleak and timeless natural world. They are met by a military band who emerge from the landscape, performing a unique, a sparkling spectacle, witnessed only by the trees and the bird-life.
