Synopsis

Blurring the line between live action and animation, this is a remarkable re-telling of a seminal event in British and Anglo-Jewish history. A young boy is taken inside the magical world of his own sketchbook by his grandfather, and shown what it was like when Oswald Mosley's 'blackshirt fascists' attempted to march through the East End of London.
