Burning Ash

An ancient ritual is used as a way of attacking a 90s yuppie.

Drama 1992 13 mins


A straight-faced Charlie Drake, making a rare late appearance, takes drastic, esoteric action when his neighbour, a yuppie commuter, cuts down branches from a precious tree situated between their two houses. Channelling the spirit of the 'rough music', an age-old form of protest, he silently wipes ashes from a fire on his face and commences a special form of retribution.
