Summary This revelatory film tells the story of the pacifism that was at the core of Britten's life and work. The drama depicting the teenage pupil at Gresham's School, Holt, already set on a career as a composer, whilst struggling to equate communism with pacifism, is framed with commentary by friends and observers and superlative contemporary musical performances.
