UR follows the challenging restorations of 2 magnificent & historic carousels, one rescued from mechanical disaster & the other from obscurity.  The elegant & enduring Looff carousel in SF, is up against a time clock to get the 100 year old mechanics safe and running.  And, the elaborately carved horses of the Illions Supreme with their flying golden manes, magnum opus of Looff protege Marcus Illions, are restored to come together again.

The story of carousels in America & the challenge of keeping them whole, keeping them spinning and keeping them authentic for the next 100 years!
