Michael Sheen plays Nye Bevan in a surreal and spectacular journey through the life and legacy of the man who transformed Britain’s welfare state and created the NHS. 

Confronted with death, Aneurin ‘Nye’ Bevan’s deepest memories lead him on a mindbending journey back through his life; from childhood to mining underground, Parliament and fights with Churchill.
