With London emptied of men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole lands herself a job writing copy for propaganda films that need "a woman’s touch". Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime.
With the country’s morale at stake, Catrin, Buckley and a colourful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin discovers there is as much drama, comedy and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.
Starring Eddie Marsan, Joanne Froggatt, Karen Drury, Andrew Buchan, Neil D'souza, Tim Potter, Michael Elkin, Paul Anderson, Bronson Webb and Lee Nicholas Harris. Directed by Uberto Pasolini.
For 22 years, life for the calm and insular John May has been his work for the local council in South London, finding the next of kin for those who have passed away alone. But in this age of efficiency, John’s meticulousness is no longer considered an asset. He’s made redundant, and left with one final assignment: a search for the relatives of a neighbour, Billy Stoke.
John methodically pieces together fragments of Billy’s life; a mix of mischief, misadventure, love and regret, most of all for an abandoned daughter, Kelly. John and Kelly are naturally drawn to each other, and as their friendship blossoms, his outlook opens imperceptibly to life’s infinite possibilities...
