100 years of England – comic, tragic, farcical and thrilling – seen through the eyes of two young people looking at the history of the Garden City. A must see for anyone with a love for our town, its history and its future.
Adam and Gemma, two kids from either side of the tracks, meet at the birthday celebrations of the Garden City. As they quarrel, banter and flirt their way round the landmarks of their birthplace, the ghosts of the past century come alive before us.
