This film is a drama about the chaos of an eccentric family in old age shot through with a dark humour and set against the majestic backdrop of the Northern Lake District.  In crisis, elderly couple Leonard and Maria ask their middle aged son Daniel for help. Daniel, their son, is in his forties, single and a teacher at primary school.  The three then frustrate, upset and fascinate each other as it becomes increasingly clear that Leonard and Maria’s real desire is to continue to live on their own terms.  The ensuing struggles are funny, painful and instantly recognisable.
