Coventry Street is a dance-theatre film following a day in the life of the Baira family during their long term trailer park quarantine in a small rural Michigan town. Coventry Street offers a fly-on-the-wall experience of parenthood, pandemic life and socio-political division. The film slips between mundane reality and a fantastical surrealism, witnessing one family’s effort to cope with it all.
