Simon Hunter’s moving drama tells the story of Edith Moore, a woman struggling with life in the months following the death of her husband. A gruff woman in her eighties, Edie’s already testy relationship with her daughter deteriorates as she prepares to move her mother into a retirement home. Redemption may come in a trip she has waited a lifetime for  -  a climbing holiday in the Scottish Highlands, which Edie has always wanted to complete. Feeling she has nothing to lose, she takes to the mountains alone.
