An able astronomer, Mr Tollerson and his frolic and industrious wife Anna arrive, planning to change the face of the lands and ultimately the face of the universe.

However, good intentions hide ambitions and ultimately an obsession in the unfortunate process, raising the old fears from the grave in front of vicar Godwinson.
