Description

We follow the story of the Urey's, a young married couple from Ballywalter, who are given an old wreck of a house by a relative. We journey through their home movies of living in a caravan on the site and of bringing up their young family as they labour year by year to finally succeed in turning the derelict building into their family home. This clip appeared in Series 3, Programme 2 of 'Super 8 Stories'.
