Love doesn’t get easier when you’re older but no wiser.
Maggie and John had a passionate but disastrous affair in their younger days, but it didn’t last. Now in their late 60s, a surprise encounter gives them another chance to take up where they left off.
Will they manage to find the best in each other and finally get together? Or will old wounds and an awareness of their ageing bodies deter them? Will the treadmill created by the high-cost, high-pressure 21st century, and their endless other commitments and interruptions large and small, overwhelm them? Or will they take the final risk?
This delightful comic drama stars Bill Nighy as John and Anna Calder-Marshall as Maggie.
