Communal life is idiosyncratically portrayed through a series of theatrical happenings.
Communal life is idiosyncratically portrayed through a series of theatrical happenings and ruptures. Young hippies in Devon dress up as minstrels and would-be revolutionaries, acting out strange, controversial encounters in an underground labyrinth.

Directed by Jim Weiss, Chris Maudson and John Phillips.
