A short documentary film about the Dammed Nations UK tour in 2014. Dammed Nations was born from the encounter between two folk music cultures, the Welsh Siân James and Gai Toms on one hand, the Nubian group Nuba Nour on the other. They all come from villages that were submerged to allow the construction of a dam. That of Aswan in Egypt, which led to the displacement of thousands of Nubians, and that of Llyn Celyn in Northern Wales, which, by shaving Capel Celyn to allow water supply to the Liverpool industries, revived the pro-independence and Celtic movement in Wales in the 1960s.
