Summary
Reworking of Chaucer's epic 14th century tale, largely set in 1940s wartime Kent. It centers on three modern-day incarnations of Chaucer's pilgrims: a plainspoken American Army sergeant (Sweet), a resourceful British sergeant (Price), and a melancholy landgirl (Sim). While enroute to Canterbury, they are waylaid and forced to solve a bizarre village crime: the mystery of a man who pours glue over the hair of village girls at night
