A fascinating and intimate insight into the lives of people who have come to London from afar in order to seek a better life and struggled to make the city their home.
Since Roman times migrants settled on the A5, the 300 mile-long lifeline connecting Anglesey to Marble Arch in central London. A collage of memorable characters are our guides: a charismatic 95-year-old Jewish widow who fled pre-war Vienna; Iqbal,an Indian poet who cleans hotel rooms by day, Keelta, an Irish singer; and Bridget, a retired air hostess. A poignant, life- affirming film.
