One Summer's day, the peaceful life of a
Suffolk village was disturbed forever by a strange visitation.
Who were the two children who seemed to have come from nowhere, spoke
no English, would eat no food and - most terrible of all--were
green from head to toe?
The 12th century monks
who reluctantly chronicled the incident offered no rational explanation. What
matters to Maxwell in his passionate and beautiful portrait of
this incident, is what do these children mean to each of the villagers
- something to fear, to threaten, to exploit, to lust after, to
love? Are they freaks or angels?
Wolfpit anatomizes a society faced by dreadful
choices, a known world trembling on the verge of the miraculous.
