Dv8 – The Cost of Living (IMDB)

In an English seaside town a group of physical performers and dancers tire of their roles and the way they are viewed by “normal” people. Two of the group in particular (an angry Scottish man and a disabled man) feel frustrated with their lot and walk off their show and into town. The Scottish man is very aggressive and talkative which brings him into conflict with some of his colleagues who just prefer their actions to do their talking.
