A narrative resistance group makes underground deposits of elaborate porcelain suggested to belong to an entirely fictional civilisation. Their aim is to influence history and support future claims to their vanishing lands. This film resides in the cross-section between science-fiction, archaeology and Middle Eastern politics. Combining live action, computer generated imagery and historical photographs, the film explores the role of myth in history, fact and national identity.
