Photos of Swansea before and after the blitz are shown, which would make anyone wonder how life could ever be the same again for the inhabitants of the city. But wonderful things can happen when communities come together and everyone helps each other. The city was rebuilt from the rubble, and people are seen working hard to make Swansea what it used to be with a modern twist.
