Approaching the end of his long life George suffers a number of strokes. These bring on memories and make him reflect on an eventful and at times terrifying life that has spanned over 70 years of world events. Seen through his eyes and sometimes the eyes of those around him and close to him we stand as spectators as he and his beloved wife Rachel battle the curse of dementia and old age. The ever-present crows on the farm act as a backdrop and are eerie fellow watchers to this moving story of love, life and loss. Following the seven ages of man and woman we see George as a young boy during World War Two with Italian prisoners of war and suffering bombing raids from the Luftwaffe on the munitions railway line that runs alongside his father’s farm.
