This film takes us on an exploration of the Watermill Theater in Berkshire and its change in uses from a corn mill to a fulling mill, a paper mill, and eventually a theater. Its three hundred year history is represented today through remnants of the past and even a rumor of a ghost. The theater combines the past with the present, creating a great harmony of new and old. As the river flows under it, people flow through it, adding to its ever-changing history along the way. This film also explores the ideas of recording ephemeral actions such as performance in the archaeological record.
