Synopsis

Set amid the tumult of the Second World War, yet with a rhythm as delicate as a lullaby, Powell and Pressburger’s beloved classic follows three modern-day incarnations of Chaucer’s pilgrims waylaid in the English countryside en route to the mythical town and forced to solve a bizarre village crime.
