Synopsis

Sam (Colin Firth) and Tusker (Stanley Tucci) have spent 20 years together, and they are as passionately in love as they have ever been. But in the two years since Tusker was diagnosed with early-onset dementia, their lives have had to change. As Tusker’s condition has progressed, Sam has been forced to place his career on hold and become his partner’s full-time carer, their time together has become the most important aspect of their lives, and every moment they now share has a weight it once did not. So, they plan a road trip while Tusker is still able to travel, to reconnect with friends and family and visit the places of their past.

Directed with understatement, warmth and compassion by Harry Macqueen, Stanley Tucci and Colin Firth give stellar performances in this heartrending modern love story about a couple struggling with irreversible illness and the inevitable loss of a life partner.
