Morris dancing is one of England's most ancient and enduring roots traditions. And yet to your average man-jack on the street, it's seen as little more than a national joke. And a bad national joke at that.

A heartfelt ode to his agrarian roots, WAY OF THE MORRIS follows filmmaker Tim Plester on a deeply personal journey from the barleyfields of his childhood to the killing fields of The Somme, in search of a connection with these much-maligned native dances that run deep in his bloodline.

Featuring contributions from iconic singer/songwriter Billy Bragg and Fairport Convention's Chris Leslie.
