Film Description:
"In a witty flight of fancy, which he wrote and sings in honour of the city's founder, balladeer James Bennet satirizes the history of Halifax. Clad in period costumes, Bennet travels through time against a background of old photographs and paintings, archival and contemporary film footage, until he ultimately finds himself in the midst of the city's present-day building boom. "
