Tommy and Ada are in the autumn of their years when they meet on a park bench. As they each confide secrets and recount memories of their yesteryears, could this be the start of something special for such an unlikely pair?

Ian Lavender (best known for his role as Private Pike in BBC sitcom Dad’s Army) and Ruth Madoc (best known for her role as Gladys Pugh in BBC sitcom Hi-De-Hi) star in this bittersweet comedy that examines relationships, loneliness and humanity.
