A tree-top struggle to stop the building of a new road around Newbury, Berkshire. Inside a giant tree house, ragged carpets and stoves create an air of cosy domesticity. But frantically built fortifications around the camp reveal the people’s fears. Here are the people and the issues behind the protest.

Made in 1996 this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The issues raised are timeless.
