It is deep Autumn and Sam and Tusker, partners of twenty years, are on holiday. They are travelling across England in their old campervan visiting friends, family and places from their past. Since Tusker was diagnosed with young-onset dementia two years ago their lives have had to change. Jobs have been given up and plans put on hold. Their time together is now the most important thing they have. As the trip progresses however, their individual ideas for their future begin to collide. Secrets are uncovered, private plans unravel and their love for each other is tested like never before. Ultimately, they must confront the question of what it means to love one another in the face of Tusker’s irreparable illness.

Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci star in this beautiful film which tells the story of a couple trying to cope with a dementia diagnosis. This is only Harry Macqueen’s (writer and director) second film, but he is taking the independent film world by storm with this striking piece of cinema. A stunningly human story about how stories live in the body and in our relationships with each other. This is a gorgeous film that should not be overlooked.
