John Akomfrah directs this documentary about cultural theorist Stuart Hall. The film examines Hall's life and his journey from student to prominent theorist. He determined that one's position in society is dependent upon a variety of factors which are constantly changing. As the documentary explores these factors it looks back through the decades from the 1950s to the present day, covering significant events that have had an impact on culture and society such as the Cold War and Margaret Thatcher's rule as Prime Minister.
