Summary:
"There was a time when London united around the vision of a better future. A group of young idealists were fusing science and art to build an egalitarian city. This documentary is their story. Their architecture fused William Morris with urban high-rise; ancient parkland with concrete. Today these buildings remain as relics of their discarded dreams. Follow the film maker's journey through the city where he grew up, meeting the architects who designed it and reuniting them with the buildings they created. It shows how their work once revolutionised life in the city, and how today it can inspire an optimistic vision of the future."--Container.
