Twelve films from different parts of the UK which explore some of the complexities of people's sense of identity.
Although it stands only a few miles from the English border and within permanent sight of the Wirrall, Ffynnongroyw was overwhelmingly Welsh-speaking until the end of the Second World War. Since then, the language has virtually disappeared not only from the village itself but from the local coal mine, Point of Ayr.
Why did this happen and how did it affect the identity and values of the community?
