In Todd Eckert's video for Exit Calm's When They Rise, four kids decide to take a trip, becoming in the process four workers in Victorian England. Their boss, Lord Always, is a sadist who increasingly controls them - as if life wasn't hard enough. The video is a contemplation of the result of that cruelty, and the inherent dignity of the common man.

A grim and poignant story, told by Todd Eckert, the producer of Anton Corbijn's debut movie Control, and featuring Oliver Wilson, the son of Factory Records founder and boss Tony Wilson.
