A group of angry and ill-assorted people accept an invitation to make a journey. Inspired by a painting and financed by a mysterious benefactor, they set off to discover the real Arcadia. Or what remains of it.Their journey begins in ignorance and chaos at Waterloo station and takes them through superstition and myth to harmony.
