Trivia

Everything in the film was done for real by then 84 year old Actress Sheila Hancock See more »

Goofs

Hancock asks for "Gas" for her ancient camping stove, and is sold a "threaded" canister - the stove she presents is a pressure operated paraffin model, and even if she was losing her faculties, it is unlikely she would have made such an error. See more »

Truly Inspiring

Follow the wonderful tale of Edith Moore (Sheila Hancock) as she embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to rekindle childhood memories that have been clouded over by the fear of growing old. Employing Jonny (Kevin Guthrie) as a trainer and guide, we watch the relationship between two entirely different generations bond over their mutual love for the outdoors.

The soundtrack, created by Debbie Wiseman, is totally immersive and wholly original, adding to the beautiful depth of emotion that is explored.

The performances of Hancock and Guthrie aren't ones to miss, presenting you with feelings of disbelief and love for these two totally different characters.

A must watch, for those who want to be inspired, as well as those who want to watch a simplistic but not simple film.
