Summary

A poetic, atmospheric amateur film which presents images of the Kent countryside. The film-maker often uses quick, rhythmic editing to cut between images of clouds, wind blowing in the trees, wildflowers, waves lapping a pebble beach, and fast-flowing rivers. The film ends with shots of an orchard in blossom.
