As the sun sets on the banks of the River Severn on the outskirts of an impoverished city in the UK, a group of men gather in a race to catch a vanishing creature; the elusive elver. THE ELVERMEN is an atmospheric film that reveals the last of a hidden community, showing how a rite of passage has transformed into a fight for values; of tradition, community, and a connection to nature in an environment of impending change.
