A portrait of the renowned British sculptor Josefina de Vasconcellos.

Even though she is approaching her hundredth birthday, she still works through the night on sculptures inspired by her surroundings and her Christian faith.

We discover how her most recent work was driven by events sixty years ago, when she found the remains of a British airman in the fells above her home in the Lake District.
