Synopsis

Actor and filmmaker Tim Plester directs this documentary about Morris dancing, in which he explores his family's background in the tradition. The English folk dance, which originated in the 15th century, is not often taken seriously in today's world. With village archive and home footage, and input from singer-songwriter Billy Bragg and folk musician Chris Leslie, the film explores the history of the Morris way and examines its place in the present day.
