A deeply moving portrait of a community in East London living on the Haggerston Estate - built on land that was originally part of the estate of the astronomer Edmond Halley, later demolished and recreated in the 1930s as a model housing estate for London’s working class. The estate’s constituent blocks are named after characters from Samuel Richardson’s Clarissa. The film mixes lyricism, literary recreation, gritty realism and music. It is poignant and real, deeply felt and important... a paean to survival, dignity, solidarity, a paean to a community in the face of erosion.

‘An enthralling and uplifting celebration of the resilience of humanity in flux.’ Andrew Kottin
