The film explores the unlikely relationship that exists between the small seaside town of Swanage in Dorset, and Surrealism. This relationship was formed by visionary English painter Paul Nash who lived in Swanage during the mid to late 1930s. As well as paintings and photographs, Nash recorded his fascination with this particular landscape in a number of essays, which form a major part of this film.
