1985, a fissure formed at England's centre and split the north from the south. A giant tear through the landscape, a real gap, descending into an abyss of bottomless depth. And in the north, cut off, things began to stir. Beneath the moors and by the rivers, in the valleys and by the sea.
The North! The North! is a dark, contemporary myth about England featuring highly physical storytelling and animation.
