This modestly quirky drama about a widower's adventures on the local bus reunites British stars Timothy Spall and Phyllis Logan, last seen on screen together in Mike Leigh’s acclaimed 1996 drama Secrets & Lies.

Director Gillies MacKinnon describes his new film as about a “man who feels as if he’s at death’s door and actually lives again”.

The film tells the story of widower Tom Harper (Spall). When his wife Mary (Logan) passes away, he uses his free bus pass to travel the length of Britain, carrying his wife’s ashes in a small suitcase. Travelling from John O’Groats in Scotland to Land’s End in Cornwall, their shared birthplace, using only local buses.

It’s an incident-fuelled nostalgia trip and his encounters with local people make him a media phenomenon. Tom is totally unaware of his growing fame and, to his surprise, on arrival at Land’s End he’s greeted as a celebrity.
