From early morning, see the inhabitants of West Wickham go about their routines on a sunny day. In just a few short hours we glimpse the activities of this community: delivering milk; waiting for the school bus; collecting for charity and keeping the streets safe. This amateur film is a colourful celebration of everyday life, where no one is too ordinary to be featured.
