Based upon the Gargoyles at Rufford Abbey in North Nottinghamshire,England, the film is a ficional tale about how the history that we read in books does not always reflect a true version of events. A young man makes an innocent visit to a decomposing country estate in search of the meaning of history. Accidentally receiving a knock on the head from falling gargoyle he descends into a dream where he meets an ageless stonemason who re-casts other tourists as the historical characters he once caricatured in stone. Together they revisit 1000 years of history which exposes the truth about aristocracy, land ownership and how history is truthfully recorded not by scribes but by the common man in the gargoyles that leave a trail through time.
Tongue in cheek - and caricatured throughout.
