In 2005, a two-ton metal sculpture went missing from the grounds of a museum near London, England. The perpetrators were not art thieves, but Travellers (Irish gypsies) who sold the priceless work for scrap. HENRY MOORE IS MELTING imagines the story behind the true-life heist, examining the consequences for one Traveller who values art more highly than the bonds of his community.
