Two elderly, bachelor brothers live together on a small farm in Forest Coal Pit, South Wales. This super 8mm portrait explores the mundanity, vibrancy and intimacy of their relationship and hyperlocal world. As they feed their livestock, tend to their garden and scrap cars, the brothers discuss elephants in China, lobster fisherman, ghosts and each other.
