In this pseudo-documentary, the lives of a small family are chronicled as they leave the gritty city behind when the millworker father takes a job as the gamekeeper on Lord Dronfield's estate. Because the Lord seldom visits his country estate, the family is left to themselves. The serious-minded gamekeeper tries his best to serve his master. Despite the resentment of the locals, he finds himself supporting the ancient feudal system.
